Dodgers Hold Fundraiser For Beaten Giants Fan

LOS ANGELES (CBS/AP) — The Los Angeles Dodgers were holding a fundraiser to help a San Francisco Giants fan in a medically induced coma since an Opening Day beating at Dodger Stadium.

The Dodgers said donors on Monday can drive to Dodger Stadium between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. and donate cash and checks to the trust fund established by the family of 42-year-old Giants fan Bryan Stow.

Two men in Dodgers gear attacked Bryan in the parking lot after the game on March 31. He remained at Los Angeles County-USC Hospital with brain trauma Sunday. Police are still looking for the assailants.

The Giants recognized longtime fan Stow during a game with the St. Louis Cardinals Sunday, and on Monday the Dodgers arrive for a three-game series with stepped-up security.

    Why does so much money needed to be raised for health care bills. I have not heard or read anything about health insurance. It seems that an employee with a company the size of AMR he would have health insurance.
    Yes health insurance is expensive but I am a small business owner and I provide my employees with health care.
    I would like to know if he is uninsured. If so I would put money to his fund. Yes the family will need money for long term bills due to loss of income but to date all I hear is medical bills

    Keep in mind that this person just got brutally beaten by two “thugs” in a parking lot. It’s not like he slipped and had an accident. It may take a long time for things to come back to normal. Especially because he is STILL in a coma. More than anything, something needs to be done to ask for forgiveness from the family and to show that the majority of fans, on both sides, are not fairly represented by this single act.
