Even here in this post you say you were "a little dazed" but at the same time, that you were "uninjured". Are we to believe that you somehow you got dazed from a non-injury?

The basic answer is that this case would be considered a one-step adjustment with an overstay. If he were down in El Salvador, you would have to first get him here, then, second, he would have to apply to adjust status.
