SANTA CRUZ, Calif. (KTLA) — San Francisco Giants fan Bryan Stow, who was brutally beaten at Dodger Stadium, has returned home after more than two years, his family said Thursday.
He was forced to leave the center because his insurance company would no longer pay for it, the family said on their website.
“Let us clarify something very important — Bryan could have benefited greatly by staying at CNS longer,” a post on the website said.
“We are so glad to have him home, but as prepared as we thought we were, it was a difficult transition.”
Stow’s parents and caregivers hired by the family will now provide the around-the-clock care that he needs.
He has memory problems, as well as pain and stiffness in his body that prevent him from doing things for himself, according to his family.
Stow, a paramedic, was beaten following an opening day game between the Dodgers and the Giants in 2011. He suffered brain damage and was permanently disabled.
Last June, two men, Louie Sanchez and Marvin Norwood, were ordered to stand trial on charges stemming from the attack. Both men have pleaded not guilty.
