Worth noting - it wasn't a failure of Orion's parachute system. It was a failure of one of the parachutes needed to set the drop up ready to deploy Orions parachutes in a flight analogous way.

You'd be fine until the last few centimetres.

Cross your legs, put out your arms. Then they can unscrew you from the ground afterwards.

Please pardon my askew humor.
