Do not think this is not a problem in this country as well. Airline pilots here call Midway Airport in Chicago "Skidway". There are lots of others just as bad.
The pilot in this case made a bad approach and then a worse decision in trying to abort the approach/landing. Everyone will blame the pilot of course but the true responsibility lies with those who allow/ encourage airline pilots to land on too short runways in bad weather.
