5:34 am
day in 2011. the mayor pushed back on that comparison. >> i'd say it's obviously a different type of situation. the situation at dodger stadium is nowhere comparable to this. it looked like a small altercation that went very bad from one punch and someone falling and hitting their head on the ground. it wasn't like you had people ganging up on somebody and beating them as you did in dodger stadium. >> doctors say luna is in a coma to prevent swelling and bleeding of his brain. i spent time outside of his restaurant and heard so many people who described him as a nice guy and someone who would never do anything to harm anyone. they say they're shocked. >> thanks. today in san jose new covid
