Bryan Stow, the San Francisco Giants fan who was nearly beaten to death outside Dodgers Stadium in 2011, has returned home to Santa Cruz, Calif., after his insurance stopped covering his live-in care at a rehab facility in Bakersfield, according to an update on his family's website.
"After a long two years of being away from home, the insurance company has ceased payment for the Centre for Neuroskills, so Bryan has come home,"
the announcement said. "Let us clarify something very important — Bryan could have benefited greatly by staying at CNS longer. We are so glad to have him home, but as prepared as we thought we were, it was a difficult transition."
Stow, 44, a former paramedic, was assaulted outside Dodgers Stadium on March 31, 2011, and suffered permanent brain damage. His attackers, Louie Sanchez, 30, and Marvin Norwood, 30, pleaded not guilty to multiple counts of assault and battery in November.

It's estimated to cost the Stow family more than $50 million to get their son the care he needs for the rest of his life.
"Bryan requires 24 hour nursing care, but this is not covered by insurance," the family said on the website. "So we had to hire caregivers in order to help Bryan to get up and showered in the morning, and get dressed and in bed in the evening. We are now the ones administrating his medical care, scheduling all his appointments, and preparing all his meals. We are not complaining… we have Bryan home!"
A lawsuit by Stow against the Dodgers organization and then-owner Frank McCourt is pending.
