They took him to the mountains to replace an old goatherd who cared for 300 animals. The man taught him the use of fire and how to make utensils, but then died suddenly or disappeared, leaving Rodríguez completely alone around 1954, when he was just seven years old.

So he was abused as an early child, then was raised by a goatherd and was abandoned to survive at seven years old.
