The tapes containing the 911 call made to authorities the evening Bryan Stow was viciously beaten outside Dodger Stadium was released yesterday during trial.

It's the first time the public has heard the 911 call made by another off-duty paramedic who was with Stow at the Dodgers and Giants opener on March 31, 2011. The caller indicates that Stow, a Giants fan from Santa Cruz, was blindsided when he was punched in the head and nearly beaten to death. He fell to the ground, hitting his head which left him with lifelong trauma. Stow was in a coma for several months and is now permanently disabled.

Stow lay bleeding in the parking lot outside the stadium as his friend waited for an ambulance to arrive. Listen to the call:

Stow, now 45, is suing the Dodgers and former owner Frank McCourt claiming they provided shoddy parking lot security the night he was attacked. In February 2014, Louie Sanchez, 31, and Marvin Norwood, 32, both plead guilty to the attack. Sanchez received eight years in prison while Norwood was sentenced to four years.

  • 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.'"
