Bryan Stow, the San Francisco Giants fan assaulted in the Dodger Stadium parking lot after the season opener, is now out of a coma and is able to minimally respond with eye and limb movements; he’s being moved to a San Francisco hospital tomorrow.
Stow was beaten by two Los Angeles Dodgers fans after the Dodgers’ win and was placed in a medically induced coma to help deal with swelling of the brain. The first attempt to bring him out of the coma ended badly with Stow suffering seizures; the second attempt was successful. The 42-year-old paramedic is still severely injured, though there are some promising signs: he’s opened his eyes several times and moved his arms and legs.
