Attacked Giants Fan Remains Under Heavy Sedation

LOS ANGELES (CBS / AP) — The San Francisco Giants fan who was severely beaten outside Dodger Stadium remains in a medically induced coma and under heavy sedation after suffering seizures over the weekend.

Bryan Stow’s cousin, John, told The Associated Press on Monday that doctors began to reduce his cousin’s medication on Thursday, but he began to suffer seizures on Friday.

He said doctors increased his cousin’s medication to prevent more seizures and he will be heavily sedated over the next 48 to 72 hours. He says doctors may know more by Friday.

Bryan Stow, a 42-year-old paramedic and father of two, was beaten in a parking lot after the March 31 season opener and remains hospitalized in Los Angeles. No arrests have been made.
