I think it depends on how it fails and what bits get caught where, but if the gear holds then its somewhere between a few feet of extension and one hell of a whipper (let's assume its a 50m pitch, after all there are clouds). The real biggest problem here is that he appears to be in the process of undoing his harness with his left hand, which kind of makes any discussion about the carabiner/belay a tad academic..
