I don't think that you can easily read the level of the RX pin, and
even if you could, you would need to change the code:


Note that the valid inputs are CTS, DCD and RNG.

You can detect a "break" condition on the RX input, but the code to
determine when the pin changed from break to idle would be tough to
debug, and probably very system-dependent.
