They did many things accidentally - and some on purpose too, although they would have later claimed it was an accident.

1. They didn't know how to properly maintain a fire therefore they set fire to the forest. This forest fire also lead to the death of the mulberry birthmark littlun.

2. They let the fire go out when a plane was overhead and therefore missed the opportunity to be rescued sooner.

3. One night they became overly tribal and savage, they mistook Simon for the beat and ended up murdering him.

4. When fighting over food, Jack broke Piggy's glasses and although this could have left him blind their main concern was that Piggy's glasses was the source of fire.
