Defender highway rollovers

I am curious how d90 softops fair in highway rollovers?
The few pics I've seen on ebay/net seem to show alot of body panel damage, but the passenger areas don't look to bad...
Just wondering about toting a tot around. I have always thought that the roll cage would provide a fair amount of protection. If you compare it to the a,b,c pillars of most cars it looks like it would hold up well.

Any experience/thoughts welcomed
Bryan
