Bryan Stow, the San Francisco Giants fan attacked to near death outside Dodger Stadium on opening day last year, is leaving the hospital for a rehab facility, the family said in a blog post.
The 43-year-old former paramedic and father of two, has been moved from Santa Clara Valley Medical Center to an unnamed facility where he will undergo "aggressive therapy" to help him become more independent. Stow will still have full-time assistance in an apartment he will share with two other patients, they say.
Nearly one year after the beating that caused brain injury, Stow still requires help getting dressed, moving around, and he suffers from memory loss.
Rialto residents Louie Sanchez and Marvin Norwood are charged in the attack. They pleaded not guilty to mayhem, assault by means likely to produce great bodily injury, and battery with serious bodily injury, and are awaiting trial. Stow's family has filed a damages lawsuit against the Dodgers.
