    if the water is deep enough and you go in feet first, those chances are pretty good.

    If you hit the water horizontally, chances are far worse

    Provided the water is deep enough, a person should be able to survive 90 minutes with out a major problem. During that time if the person can get out of the water and to a place where they can get dry, warm up and stay warm few problems could be expected. Of course if they have to deal with air that is colder before that can take place the chances of surviving rapidly drop.

    It is not the distance to the surface of the water as much as how deep it is and angle of entry. In abandon ship training in the Navy the directions are to take on step forward and come to attention. The wrong entry angle can result in broke bones, which make surviving more difficult. If the water is not deep enough by having the feet down, it will leave the arms to swim with if the legs get broken. Go in head first into too shallow of water can result in getting knocked out and drowning.
