I'd say because the idea of knowing that you are facing a horrible and untimely death is super depressing. They're trapped with their only exit being an inferno, and they know that either they prolong their lives a little more or they jump to end it before they're burned alive, or they hope that the thing collapses and they manage to somehow survive.
I find it strange that a helicopter couldn't fly over and lower a ladder for them though.

It's too high up for a rescue helicopter, I'd think. Or the hot air will prove dangerous if the wind shifts because it can create updrafts.
The other thing is that there may not have been time to prepare and fly a rescue helicopter. A fire like that might completely destroy the tower in less than 20 minutes. I don't know the full story, but there could have been a myriad of reasons why there was no help. I do know that one walked into the fire and one jumped, IE both committed suicide, so perhaps they chose to die thinking nothing could help them, before help could even arrive.

It's possible also that this was in the 1960s-1970s, in the early days of color photography. You'd be lucky if you got told to wear safety glasses while welding.
Although, I think the men were inside the windmill and the fire forced them out onto the top. When you're inside a high place like a skyscraper, you don't think to wear a parachute all the time. If everyone in the world trade centers wore parachutes and knew how to use them, they'd be able to jump off the safe side of the building and land theoretically safely (though maybe not).
But that's all conjugation. Even if these men had parachutes, it may not have saved their lives.
