Doctors are once again working to bring San Francisco Giants fan Bryan Stow, beaten in the Dodger Stadium parking lot after the team’s season opener, out of a medically induced coma.
The coma was induced to allow his damaged brain time to heal. Stow was beaten by two assailants after the Giants/Dodgers game on March 31 apparently for wearing Giants gear. The assailants are still at large, and the incident caused the Dodgers to overhaul their ballpark security efforts, bringing in additional LAPD officers and hiring former police chief William Bratton to review operations.
Stow was once brought out of the coma but suffered serious seizures, forcing doctors to bring back the coma. This time Stow’s medication is being lessened more gradually over the course of several days.
