49. Well, it appears the "left him alone in the woods" story didn't actually happen.
This story is all about identifying the symptoms associated with diabetes. Amtrak needs to educate their employees. Maybe diabetes should be the default assumption......though that may be a tough one if the person is taking advantage of the drink car when the attack comes.

I grew up with a diabetic parent. My mom would become a babbling mess when she was hypoglycemic. Not knowing the damage she was doing to her body, we kids thought it was kinda funny. Usually a little orange juice would fix the problem.
