Giants Raise Nearly $70,000 For Injured Fan

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS / AP) — The San Francisco Giants have raised nearly $70,000 to help the longtime fan who was attacked earlier this season outside Dodger Stadium.

The Giants announced the total Tuesday. The money will go toward the medical costs and other expenses for Bryan Stow. The 42-year-old paramedic remains in a medically induced coma.

On Monday, the Giants partnered with Stow’s employer, American Medical Response, to gather donations at AT&T Park for the Bryan Stow Fund. The total includes proceeds from a silent auction and a $10,000 donation from the team.

The Giants dedicated Monday night’s game to Stow. San Francisco lost 6-1 to the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Stow was severely beaten outside Dodger Stadium after the season opener on March 31. No arrests have been made and there’s a $150,000 reward.

    I’m sure this poor fellow has insurance through his employer, if he did not have insurance $70,000 would cover about four days of his medical bills. When I worked as a volunteer EMT we took accident victims to the hospital ER that had no chance of surviving and they would still run up bills of $8,000 plus on hopeless cases. It doesn’t take a medical degree to know that when a person has been impaled by his steering wheel that he has zero chance of survival. Why do the hospitals do it?, lawyers.

    He must have health insurance, he is a paramedic I believe. Regardless, it is nice to see people be so generous for something they had no part in causing.
