Default Skydiver accident

A few days ago I saw a quick story on FOX news about a skydiving
accident. They said that the skydiver hit the wing which cut his legs
off. Well the photo they had of the airplane was some twin and the
leading edge of the wing was crushed just out board of the left engine.
It looks to me like what probably cut his legs off was the prop not the
wing. But my question is how on earth did he impact the leading edge of
the wing when the door is behind the wing?
