LOS ANGELES (AP) — Doctors say a San Francisco Giants fan who was beaten and badly injured at Dodger Stadium is showing signs of brain damage and remains in critical condition.

A Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center neurosurgeon said Tuesday that Bryan Stow of Santa Cruz suffered a severe skull fracture and bad bruising to his frontal lobe.

For the first time the victim’s mother, Ann Stow, has spoken out. She spoke exclusively with KCAL 9’s Serene Branson about finding out her son was in the hospital and how their lives will never be the same again.

Dr. Gabriel Zada said Stow remains in a coma and that he’s showing signs of “brain injury and dysfunction.”

Meanwhile, Los Angeles Police Det. Jose Carrillo said investigators are checking an unconfirmed report that three men in Giants gear were struck by the same attackers before Stow was knocked to the ground and hit his head on the pavement.

Stow’s relatives said they do not blame Dodger fans for the attack.
