From AP:

A San Francisco Giants fan who was severely beaten at Dodgers Stadium has been transferred to a hospital closer to home.

Bryan Stow arrived by ambulance to San Francisco General Hospital shortly before 2 p.m. Monday.

The Santa Cruz man was transported by plane from Los Angeles, where he’s been in critical condition at Los Angeles County-University of Southern California Medical Center since the March 31 attack.

Stow has been in a medically induced coma for most of the past seven weeks, as doctors work to reduce swelling in his brain and avoid seizures.

Officials at San Francisco General, a top trauma center, say Stow will be monitored there by its chief of neurosurgery.

KCBS has raw video of yesterday’s announcement at USC Hospital that Stow would be moved. Stow’s mother speaks starting at 4:20.
