SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS)— According to a posting on Bryan Stow‘s website, his insurance company has stopped paying for his rehabilitation in Bakersfield so now he’s been forced to come home even as his condition seems to be worsening.
Stow was the Giants fan who was savagely beaten outside Dodger Stadium two years ago and suffers from permanent brain damage and is confined to a wheelchair.
A letter from his family posted last week says he was in a 24-hour-a-day care facility where he was making some progress but now his insurance company has stopped paying. Now Stow has had to come home where his parents are struggling to provide the kind of constant care he needs.
The letter said Stow could have benefited from more time in rehab since he still has memory and speaking problems. Because of the lack of therapy they say he’s suffered a physical setback as well. But they say despite the difficult transition they are happy to have him home.
The two men arrested for Stow’s beating, Louie Sanchez and Marvin Norwood, are still awaiting trial in Los Angeles.
