Their mission intensifies with the climbing mercury as they confront nature’s harshness and man’s. “A heightened fervor takes hold as the heat rises,” they lament, pointing to a disheartening pattern. When the scorching heat waves roll in, so does a surge in abuse cases. They found Roddie bore a secret even darker than her limping gait suggested.
Once safe within the rescue’s sanctuary, a tragic revelation came to light. Medical professionals uncovered a chilling truth: a bullet, having pierced Roddie’s fragile leg, had settled near her shoulder. The aftermath? A bone shattered beyond repair.
