Bryan Stow, 42, a San Francisco paramedic, who was attacked by two suspects on March 31st at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, last week has been upgraded from ‘critical’ to ‘serious’ condition but his doctors say they remain “extremely cautious about interpreting his progress”. Stow is able to open his eyes and respond to basic commands. Doctors said Stow suffered a 30-second seizure recently and underwent surgery to relieve fluid built up in this head.

New details of the attack, that has spurred nation-wide public outrage, were released at a bond reduction hearing on August 1st. Stow was punched on the side of his head from behind. As fellow paramedics witnessed, Stow become unconscious before he fell to the asphalt covered parking lot. Stow was unable to impede his fall. Witnesses further heard his head hit the asphalt and observed his head bounce upon hitting the ground. Once on the ground, one of the two beating suspects kicked Stow numerous times in the head. The other suspect also kicked Stow in the head.
