it can be fixed in PS as a raw file.

Honest question: Isn't it possible that he clipped the red highlights completely, meaning he can't recover them in raw?

Absolutely. The OP even states that the raw data are blown as well. At least that's how I read his/her post. In that case, indeed, nothing much can be done. Lesson learned: it seems one has to be a bit careful with the reds on the Fujis, even on the X-Trans cameras. In this particular case, perhaps, one can pull it back a bit by using the data in the other channels, but the color would get distorted no matter what, so the final result wouldn't be authentic, unless one does some sophisticated color correction on top of it.
