Fan's Family Tells ESPN Attack Changed Their Lives
The mother of the Giants fan who was attacked outside Dodger Stadium tells ESPN the prognosis for her injured son is unclear.

Ann Stow says doctors say they will know more when he comes out of his medically induced coma. She says: ``They don't even know if he can respond to commands.''

Bryan Stow, a 42-year-old paramedic and father of two, was beaten in a parking lot after the March 31 season opener and remains hospitalized in Los Angeles. No arrests have been made.

Just before the attack, Stow, wearing a Giants jersey, had texted a family member to say he feared for his safety in the raucous, pro-Dodger crowd.

Stow's cousin, John, also tells ESPN on Sunday that the attack ``changed all of our lives forever.''
