Local papers report that a 61 yr old male owner of the plane and a 12 yr old girl survived the crash
This is the report from the local Marlborough Express. The pilot and passenger are not named. Lucky escape from glider crash south of Blenheim
It would seem that the wing failed and folded over as it is seen on the ground. This prevented the ballistic parachute from being deployed & the glider then spiralled down like a sycamore seed as Pylon said about 1500 feet. They were very lucky & I bet extremely dizzy on contact with the side of the mountain.
It’s reported the aircraft rego was ZK-CZJ. Morgan 10 Cheyenne owned by G.S. Morgan. https://www.caa.govt.nz/script/aircraft-register-query/RegisterationMarkForm

The wing appears to have bent over a considerable length near the wing root.. Compression failure in the top elements?. Not a very thick section. Nev
Perhaps "Nobody's " comment closer to the (fairly obvious) truth than "harsh"?
I personally thought that Nobody's comment was polite, very well supported by his figuring, and worthy of consideration. (edited..mod)
Agree Oscar and summarily dismissed by Mr Morgan.
