Bryan Stow, the San Francisco Giants fan who was severely beaten outside Dodger Stadium on March 31, is stable enough that he will transferred to a San Francisco hospital, according to the Associated Press.
Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com reported earlier this week that Stow could potentially be moved closer to home.
Stow remains in a coma and is in critical condition, but he’ll be transferred to San Francisco General and Trauma Center as early as Monday morning. He has been treated at the Los Angeles County + University of Southern California Medical Center since the attack.
Here’s part of a message written by Stow’s family on their website:
“The day has finally come! Bryan is now stable enough to bring home up north. This time is so bittersweet…we are happy we get to bring Bryan home.”
The search for the attackers was bolstered this week after approximately 200 billboards with sketches of the suspects were unveiled in the Los Angeles area. Officials are currently offering a $100,000 reward for information leading to arrests and convictions.
