Beaten Giants fan Bryan Stow speaks on camera for first time

The San Francisco Giants fan who was nearly beaten to death on opening day has spoken on camera for the first time since the attack.

In the video clip aired on San Francisco's NBC affiliate Thursday, Dr. Nancy Snyderman of the news magazine show “Rock Center” introduces herself to Bryan Stow, who is sitting on a bed.

After she introduces herself, Stow asks Snyderman: “How are you?” She says she's doing well, and Stow replies: “That's good.”

“Rock Center” released the video to preview its full report on Stow's recovery at an undisclosed rehab center. The video is scheduled to air Monday at 10 p.m.

The paramedic and father of two young children spent months in a medically induced coma after being punched in the head, kicked and slammed to the ground outside Dodger Stadium last March.

He was moved from the hospital to the rehab center in October as he continues to recover from a traumatic brain injury.

Stow's family has chronicled his recovery on their blog. Last month, they reported Stow was still showing signs of confusion and frustration as he works to regain his ability to move and speak. They say he does recognize friends and family, whom he joined last month for Thanksgiving.

Louie Sanchez, 29, and Marvin Norwood, 30, were arrested and charged in the attack following a Los Angeles police investigation. Investigators describe the assault as the culmination of a string of confrontations they had with randomly selected Giants fans at the stadium.

Sanchez and Norwood both have pleaded not guilty to mayhem, assault by means likely to produce great bodily injury, and battery with serious bodily injury.
