LOS ANGELES - Bryan Stow, the Live Oak father of two seriously injured in an attack by rival baseball fans at Dodger Stadium, was placed back in a medically induced coma after suffering seizures Saturday, hospital officials reported today.

Stow, 42, remains in critical condition, said Rosa Saca of Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center.

The Santa Clara County paramedic suffered a skull fracture March 31 during an attack outside Dodger Stadium, authorities said.

Doctors put Stow in a medically induced coma after he was beaten in the parking lot of Dodger Stadium following the Giants-Dodgers season opener. Stow and friends wore Giants jerseys, and witnesses told authorities that the two Dodgers fans who attacked him were drunk.

His family remains at his bedside, Saca said. Stow grew up in Capitola.

Despite a $150,000 reward, police have not arrested any suspects in the attack. The attackers struck Stow from behind and beat and kicked him when he fell to the ground.

Friends have held several fundraisers to offset his medical and other expenses.

Donations to the Bryan Stow Fund can be made at www.sfpcu.org.
