Tucker, a 7-month-old lab, was thrown from a car earlier this month when his owner, 20-year-old Shanya Pottle, was seriously hurt in a crash, according to the Morning Sentinel. He survived more than three weeks in the woods of East Madison.
A mother called 911 for help as she texted with her son, who was trapped inside the Pulse nightclub. A sister told a dispatcher that her 20-year-old brother also was trapped, in a bathroom at the gay club, and that "he said there were a lot of dead people."
People were texting, calling and video-chatting for help during the mass shooting of 49 people in June, and their loved ones frantically called police dispatchers in turn, according to numerous audio recordings of 911 calls released Tuesday by the Orange County Sheriff's Office.
ISIS' second-in-command, Abu Muhammad al-Adnani, is dead, according to the media arm of the terrorist organization, NBC News reported.
The circumstances of Abu Muhammad al-Adnani's death in Aleppo, Syria, have not been confirmed. Officials in Washington — who had put out a $5 million reward for al-Adnani — had no immediate comment.
The 37-year-old Syrian, who was ISIS' director of external investigations and main spokesman, is best known for issuing an edict for lone wolves to kill Westerners in September 2014.
He was at the top of the U.S. government's kill list of ISIS leaders, senior American military and intelligence officials told NBC News in December. The U.S. wanted al-Adnani dead because he was considered the author of the strategy of wanton murder that has left more than 500 dead in attacks around the world since October 10 — and apparently helped inspire last year's massacre in San Bernardino.
