"When American Airlines lost her Alzheimer’s afflicted dad, a desperate Keraphline Dupuy hunted for three days before he was found wandering the streets of Brooklyn.
The sick man was freezing cold, soaking wet and 25 miles from LaGuardia Airport, with no recollection of the previous 72 hours."

You think this story is a little crazy?
Well how about this part?
While wandering he was admitted to the New York University Langone Medical Center in Manhattan. He was treated there for a backache — and then “just put back out into the streets.”
You might be wondering, where were the police (they didn't find him)? Where was American Airlines (they didn't help)!
