Yeah, it's a dramatic headline. But what else can you say about this?

PHOENIX -- A 65-year-old St. Louis man is missing after Amtrak personnel, mistaking his diabetic shock for drunk and disorderly behavior, kicked him off a train in the middle of a national forest, according to police in Williams, Ariz.

"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.

How do you just drop a guy off in the middle of a forest? I don't care if its a diabetic or a bum. Just "Here you go mate! Have fun picking berries and hiding from the rain under trees."
