Sunday Evening Update:
Rodriguez called to inform us her AC had been restored and she's happy with the apartment complex's response.
Jessica Rodriguez's air conditioner has been broken since Friday night, leaving her and her 20-month-old son with a hot apartment. She called the emergency maintenance line Friday to see if they could fix it, but they told her to call back in the morning.
"I called Saturday morning and they just kept saying the same thing to me over and over. That they would put in a request, but couldn't guarantee anything," Rodriguez said.
They told Jessica that they would come out and fix the problem if it was over 98 degrees. Anything over that temperature would be considered an emergency. The official high yesterday was 101 degrees according to our meteorologists.
Jessica said the worst part about the heat, is how it effects her son's asthma. Which she treats with a special machine called a Nebulizer.
All she can do right now is continue to call the maintenance people and try to stay cool.
"I just keep all the lights off, I keep the shades drawn and keep the doors closed. That way it will stay cold in just one room,” Rodriguez said.
This isn't the first time this has happened.
"Once, twice, yeah okay, but 5 or 6 times. It's just not acceptable with my son here," Rodriguez said.
