SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) – Bryan Stow, the San Francisco Giants fan who was brutally beaten in Los Angeles outside Dodger Stadium in March is expected to be transferred to San Francisco General Hospital on Monday.

Hospital officials tell KRON 4 News they believe Stow will be transported via helicopter from Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center. This could change if his condition doesn’t remain stable, officials say.

The 42-year-old has been in a coma at Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center since March 31 when he was attacked by two men.

Stow’s relatives have been writing about his medical condition on a blog. On Friday, they wrote “Bryan has been responsive to stimulation, and while he doesn't do it on command, his eyes have been opening. He doesn't focus, but Dr. Zada said it was something. We had not been getting eye movement, except within the past few days, with them opening today. Again, not sure if it’s involuntary, but it's another ‘we'll take it’ moment.”

Stow, an emergency technician, was attacked near Dodger Stadium's F2 parking lot by two men wearing Dodgers clothing, according to police.

The men hit him from behind, causing him to fall to the ground, police said.

Stow's friends tried to intervene and were also assaulted.

The two suspects remain at large.
