If the instructor had deployed his chute would it have saved them both?

hmmm, seems like a few errors where made:
1) in the case of a student not opening his own parachute the instructor will always pull it for him. In fact it's normal for that to happen for most students during their first two jumps. So that is not exceptional at all. It seems from the report like the instructor waited way too long to do it.
2) the automatic deploy was obviously misconfigured for the students chute. It should be set at a way higher altitude for students.
Stupid accident that could have been easily averted imho
