San Francisco Giants fan Bryan Stow, beaten in the Dodger Stadium parking lot after the Dodgers’ season opener, is still in a medically induced coma after an attempt to bring him back to consciousness ended poorly.
On Friday doctors reduced Stow’s medication in order to bring him out of the induced coma and evaluate his condition. Initially there were no problems, but by Saturday morning Stow was suffering through severe seizures to the point where doctors reinduced the medical coma for at least another week.
Stow, a Giants fan, was beaten by two assailants in the Dodger Stadium parking lot after the Opening Day victory by the Dodgers. His attackers remain at large, but the baseball community has rallied to Stow’s cause; Giants pitcher Tim Lincecum personally donated $25,000 to the Bryan Stow Fund, while both teams have had fundraisers for the injured paramedic, including a Dodger Stadium parking-lot rally led by Tommy Lasorda. Preventative measured implemented both at AT&T Park and Dodger Stadium have kept things quiet between Giants-Dodgers fans in the meantime.
