I don't the side curtain would have been of any use in this particular crash. Look at the angles....That neck was broken before it would have contacted the air bag. I am dissapointed in the speed of deployment though. Not sure how it would have helped in any crash.
As far as the child in the rear.... bad test. Child should have been in the center seat, note that the rear side airbag deployed. A major child seat no no.

In real life no one could survive in that kind of accident. The impact itself was too strong, even side curtains won't help.
