Listen: 911 audio released in paramedic Stow beating

Another off-duty paramedic who was with Stow placed the 911 call

SF Weekly

SAN FRANCISCO — The tapes containing the 911 call made to authorities the evening Bryan Stow was viciously beaten outside Dodger Stadium was released yesterday during trial.

It's the first time the public has heard the 911 call made by another off-duty paramedic who was with Stow at the Dodgers and Giants opener on March 31, 2011. The caller indicates that Stow, a Giants fan from Santa Cruz, was blindsided when he was punched in the head and nearly beaten to death. He fell to the ground, hitting his head which left him with lifelong trauma. Stow was in a coma for several months and is now permanently disabled.

Stow lay bleeding in the parking lot outside the stadium as his friend waited for an ambulance to arrive. Listen to the call:

Stephen Procedo Stephen Procedo Friday, June 06, 2014 4:57:40 PM Andrew.....That situation was exceptionally stressful and he was watching his friend and coworker unconscious with a massive head injury. I think he's allowed to miss-speak on the type of respirations he was witnessing. Oh and yes Kussmaul respirations are associated with DKA typically.
Steve Jacobi Steve Jacobi Friday, June 06, 2014 7:44:52 PM @Stephen Procedo and Andrew Smith, Didn't your EMT class address TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury)? Did you learn only one disease process associated with Kussmaul respirations? Do you not understand why the body initiates this type of breathing?
