“It was like he didn't want to be seen, [as] if by burying himself in the wall maybe we would go away,” Rood told The Dodo. “It was truly heartbreaking to see.”
But Rood was determined to help Stewart, so she snapped a few photos of him and posted them on Facebook. The photos made their way to Bellew’s newsfeed.
“I saw that one picture of his face against the wall, and I said, ‘I’ll take him,’” Bellew said.
