Roosevelt Sims was in the middle of a diabetic shock. But officials on an Amtrak train thought he was drunk. So they put him off the train in the middle of a national forest in Arizona, two miles from the nearest road. He was found several days later, dehydrated and disoriented, about two miles from where the train left him. Amtrak officials said the train's crew was just following the railroad's policy.
