A San Francisco Giants fan who suffered brain damage after being severely beaten at Dodger Stadium after a game in 2011 is back in the hospital after suffering a blood clot.
Bryan Stow's family posted a note on their website Friday that said he suffered a large blood clot in his thigh and pelvis that could have been fatal.
The family said a filter was inserted in Stow's abdomen to catch any new clots before they reached his lungs. Stow also received injections to help dissolve the clot and prevent others.
Stow, a paramedic from Santa Cruz, was permanently disabled after the beating, which sparked new efforts to increase fan safety and stadium security.

Stow's family said he would be in the hospital at least through the weekend.
