Controlled Flight Into Terrain (CFIT) claims lives every year, as pilots foolishly continue flying into situations where they are unable to see the ground. Here is a video of some folks literally coming within inches of becoming another statistic. It just boggles my mind that a pilot would fly near this terrain with this kind of weather, especially when there are other people in the aircraft with him. No flight is that important.
