I'm guessing that the horn going off is low rotor rpm? Looks like they were in IMC.

It really is gut wrenching to see this. No need for it at all.

Shows you how quickly it can go wrong when flying into IMC and you are not prepared for it. Sadly it all could have been prevented just after takeoff when you could see what the weather was doing. Turn round and land and drive to the wedding.
