Dodger Stadium beating victim undergoes emergency surgery

July 20, 2011 |  9:13 am

Bryan Stow, the San Francisco Giants fan who was severely beaten at the Dodgers home opener, underwent emergency surgery this week after he suffered a 30-second seizure, his family said.

Shelby Grad writes on The Times' L.A. Now blog:

Doctors believe the seizure was caused by buildup of fluids in his brain, the family said on its website.

Stow's doctor "removed the bone flap that was put in on Friday and he found some sort of growth he had never seen before," the family said. "The growth was removed and a filter put in to help drain the fluid from his head."
