Most likely that is correct.  I don't know the stopping distance number.  But look at it this way.  Even if there was not enough runway to stop and an overrun was inevitable, they would have overrun and crashed a slow speed rather than balls to the wall.  Hence the safer outcome would have been rejecting.

             Very tragic.  Especially considering the fact that this is an accident that should never had happened.

             I was just wondering, not being a pilot, what the mindset is of a pilot who is running out of runway.

             Is it human nature to want to force the issue (get it up), or would any well trained pilot instinctively

             abort the take-off ?    Sorry if it's a stupid question...
