1) The man travels alone without a companion.
2) The man doesn't pay close enough attention to the ice, slips through, and exposes his feet to the water.
The man's initial mistakes come because he's prideful and over confident. In the end, he lacks the imagination to comprehend how unforgiving nature is when not respected.
