I think it is a natural instinct to call out to God when things go horribly wrong. I don't think they believe in God, at least not like they know he exists, but out of desperation that they know they are out of options. But it's still sad to hear all those cries of desperation and hopelessness.

Why is it sad? According to Calvinists, it's all predetermined by God so it's his will. Am I right? Shouldn't you then rejoice?

No, Christians don't rejoice over the lost. They witness to them and pray for them as God wills. The blind aren't condemned because God willed it, they are condemned because of their own sins. The responsibility is mankind's own.
