November 29 in San Antonio history…

1938

1983
Bexar County jail inmates have taken up a collection and presented $300 to a woman whose 12-year-old son drowned in the San Antonio sewer system. “ Nobody made them do it,” said Sheriff Joe Neaves, who added that the inmates simply wanted to help pay for the boy’s funeral.  The boy’s body was discovered Nov. 4, more than a day after he tumbled into an open manhole while playing soccer at school.
