According to the analysis report, the pilot had to make a fast decision between whether to keep climbing or descending to avoid a low hanging cloud. He chose the latter. Obviously descending is putting the chopper at a higher risk of colliding with some hill or ground. He tried to turn to avoid the hill, but there were hills on all of the sides.... and BAM.
This sounds very incompetent piloting. But they really shouldn't have been flying when the clouds are so low.
