I accidentally selected the multi exposure mode on my Pentax K-70, so all my photos are overlapping.

Is there a way to extract the original photos?

No. It is not possible to separate the input images. The camera saves the exposures in memory and combines them to create the image file. It does not save a file for each exposure.
