Bryan Stow returns to San Francisco, family thanks people of L.A.

The Northern California paramedic severely injured in a beating at Dodger Stadium in March was flown from Burbank today. He was deemed stable enough to leave County-USC Medical Center for San Francisco General Hospital. Stow's family said it was good to have Stow closer to home, but also bittersweet. At their website, they thank the people of Los Angeles.

However, we have to leave all the wonderful people we have met on this journey. The employees at Marriott downtown, all our friends at the hospital, the nurses, his doctors and the people of LA who have been AMAZING....we are SO sad to be leaving you all. Please know that our family is forever in debt to your love, support and random acts of kindness that have pulled us through this. When Bryan wakes up, we will tell him about all our newfound friends for life.

To the people who have permanantly implanted yourselves in our lives, you know who you are....we love you. To all Bryan's supporters who have reached out on this website and have followed this story since day one....another HUGE thank you. We read the comments on the site daily, and they have truly been an inspiration. We promise to continue the updates, please continue to keep Bryan in your thoughts and prayers.

Also: Security will be beefed up for the Giants' visit to Dodger Stadium on Wednesday and Thursday.
