SALT LAKE CITY -- The Utah man who inspired Dustin Hoffman's character in the movie "Rain Man" has died.
Kim Peek, 58, collapsed at his home in Salt Lake City on Saturday from what his dad says was a massive heart attack.
Kim couldn't do simple things like turning on a light or dressing himself because the membrane that allows the right and left hemisphere to talk to each other was missing.
Kim was a unique megasavant. He was able to recall most everything he read or heard -- from zip codes to historical events -- and he could do it in seconds.
