Stow suffers setback in recovery

Modified: Saturday, Jan 26th, 2013

SAN FRANCISCO -- Bryan Stow, a former paramedic from Santa Cruz County who suffered brain damage after being severely beaten at Dodger Stadium after a game in 2011 is back in the hospital after suffering a blood clot.

Stow's family posted a note on their website Friday that said he suffered a large blood clot in his thigh and pelvis that could have been fatal.

The family said a filter was inserted in Stow's abdomen to catch any new clots before they reached his lungs. Stow also received injections to help dissolve the clot and prevent others.

Stow, a San Francisco Giants fan, was permanently disabled after the beating on opening day of the 2011 season, which sparked new efforts to increase fan safety and stadium security.

Stow's family said he would be in the hospital at least through the weekend.

Meanwhile, Giants third base coach Tim Flannery is conducting several concerts through the weekend with proceeds going toward Stow.

Flannery and his band, Lunatic Fringe, is scheduled to perform at the Kuumbwa Jazz Center in Santa Cruz at 7 p.m. Sunday. Tickets are $25 in advance, $28 at the door.
