SANTA CRUZ — A San Francisco Giants fan who suffered brain damage after a beating at Dodger Stadium has returned home after two years in hospitals and rehabilitation centers.
Bryan Stow's family said on its website Wednesday that Stow will now live with them in the Santa Cruz area after spending about a year at the Centre for Neuroskills in Bakersfield, a live-in rehab facility.
The family said Stow could have used more time at the center, but their insurance will no longer pay for it, so Stow's parents and home nurses will give him the around-the-clock care he needs.
Stow, a paramedic, was beaten in a parking lot after the 2011 opening day game between the Giants and Dodgers in Los Angeles. Two Dodgers fans are awaiting trial on charges in the beating, which sparked outrage and brought stadium security changes around the state and country.
Stow's family said the transition home has been hard.
