A Deceleration Special Report on the Recent Passing of Albert Garcia.

Beneath a highway off-ramp beside I-35 on San Antonio’s West Side, Albert Garcia made his home. But on August 12, 2023, after enduring nearly a month of triple-digit temperatures, Garcia, at age 56, passed away. Garcia previously lost both feet and part of one leg living exposed during 2021’s Winter Storm Uri. Residents are now seeking to hold city and state agencies accountable for his death. This is a special Deceleration.news report. — Greg Harman
