Would in that situation as the ejection trajectory would have been upwards.
Well, don't know about western seats capabilities, but at least that has been the case with russians (famous for the zero-zero capabilities in almost any situation as long rockets don't push you toward ground) that has ejected in far more dangerous looking situations (toward ground).

Anyways, no ejection happened or too late (under water?) that was big problem.

Could consider that such modern fighter has a safety feature for automatic ejection when computer calculates that aircraft will impact the surface without nothing changing the end result.

Meaning the system doesn't calculate "You have 10 seconds to impact" but "3 seconds to impact and no way to pull up -> Auto-Eject"
