Diabetic Man Kicked Off LA-Bound Train, Now Missing

Check out this story.  A 65 y/o man was kicked off of an Amtrak train because employees thought he was drunk.  It was later revealed that he was in diabetic shock.  Read this:

“He was let off in the middle of a national forest, which is about 800,000 acres of beautiful pine trees,” Lt. Mike Graham said. 

Police said there is no train station or running water at the crossing, which is about two miles from the nearest road, at an elevation of about 8,000 feet.

Amtrak personnel told police dispatchers that Sims was drunk and unruly.

The Sims family said Sims is diabetic and was going into shock. Sims’ brother, Brian Mason, said his family tried to call Sims on his cell phone that night, but Sims was incoherent.

When officers arrived at the crossing, police said, Sims ran into the woods, leaving his luggage and medication behind.

I can understand why he ran off, he was scared for his life!!  He is a 65 year old man who was kicked out in the middle of a national forest in Arizona. Was he drunk?  I don’t know, but like this article said; even if he was drunk, no one deserves to be dropped off in the middle of forest in the middle of the night!!!
