Bryan Stow's friends spoke publicly for the first time last night about the day their friend was attacked outside Dodger stadium. In an interview with NBC, Corey Maciel and Jeff Bradford described what happened.

"He was punched with a haymaker in the side of the head," said Maciel. "First thing that hit the ground was the back of his head, and I watched his head bounce off the asphalt, and heard it. That sound of bone hitting asphalt...Jeff and I actually got to him right about the same time, and jumped on top of him, covered him up. Pleading for these guys to stop."

Maciel added that it was a "running, huge, sweeping punch" that first knocked Stow to the ground, reports TMZ.

Doctor Nancy Snyderman also told NBC that it's a "given" that Stow is disabled, but the extent of his disabilities remain to be seen.
