Hobbo:
Oh dear.

krenaud:
Thank goodness that resources exist to help when people need it. But, it is sad to see how many have so little regard for their own safety.

captain paranoia:
I suspect, in most cases, it's simply a lack of understanding of what mountain climbing actually entails.  I'm sure these people don't deliberately set out to endanger themselves, but merely get caught out inadequately prepared, because they simply didn't expect/didn't understand the conditions they encountered.

John-C:
.....and look how far up he was!
