Narrative:The airplane landed hard and short of the runway, impacting a berm, then became airborne briefly before colliding with multiple obstacles. The pilot-rated passenger was flying the airplane and overshot the final approach course. The pilot took over the control of the airplane and continued the approach at 75 knots with one notch of flaps extended. The pilot said that while on short final, the airplane "experienced a severe downdraft" that pushed the airplane to the ground. The airplane landed short of the runway and impacted a berm, after which the pilot intended to keep the airplane on the ground and stop. During the hard landing, the pilot-rated passenger grabbed the controls, applied full power, and pulled aft on the control yoke in an attempt to abort the landing. As the pilot fought with the passenger for the controls, the airplane experienced a "power on stall" and drifted to the left before impacting the ground again multiple times. The pilot reduced engine power and stopped the airplane. The weather observation facilities closest to the accident airport reported the wind between 8 and 11 knots. The pilot reported there were no mechanical anomalies with the airplane and engine prior to the accident.
