Bryan Stow Update: Doctors to Take Beaten Giants Fan Out of Coma

Doctors are attempting to remove Bryan Stow from his medically induced coma for the second time since he was viciously beaten outside Dodger stadium last month.

Hospital officials in Los Angeles told reporters today that it will take up to three days before there could be any change in Stow's condition. The last time doctors removed the 42-year-old paramedic from his coma, he suffered multiple seizures, and doctors immediately put him back under.   

At that time, doctors had warned that the chances of his waking up were slim. Still, Stow's family remains by his beside, and baseball fans -- and even players -- have consistently shown support, hosting fundraisers and donating money.

On April 18, Giants pitcher Tim Lincecum gave $25,000 to the Stow family fund to help cover mounting medical bills. And former Giants player Barry Bonds visited with Stow's family on Friday, according to news reports.

Stow was brutally beaten on March 31 as he left the opener game between the Giants and the Dodgers in Los Angeles. He was walking to his car when two men heckled him and beat him -- even while he was lying unconscious. Stow suffered a fractured skull and brain swelling.

Los Angeles police have released sketches of the suspects and are offering a $150,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the men responsible for the attack.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
