Can anyone tell me if the pilot/copilot made it out of the crash?

Judging by the airspeed, RoD and the angle looked pretty deadly.

Probably a rookie pilot for the Royal Canadian Air Force; bird hit the left inlet of the turbofan in his Hawk -50 or 60 which in turn killed the engine.

Why the aircraft pitched upward right after the bird hit is odd, I would understand a small movement but that much for such a long period is surly due to pilot error/ inexperience. It may seem minor but that movement scrubbed about 80kts of ground speed. Had they had they extra speed during the standard rate turn they went into while they attempted to “spool up” the engines via a compressed air starter they may have lived.
