NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Five years ago a Brooklyn man was beaten into a coma during a barroom brawl near upstate Binghamton University.
Now, after a long recovery, Bryan Steinhauer will be running a half-marathon in Manhattan on March 17 to raise money for a fund he started at Mount Sinai Hospital called Minds Over Matter. The foundation helps support young adults with brain injuries.
The 26-year-old suffered skull fractures and a severe brain injury when he was attacked in May 2008.
“Out of nowhere, I wake up in a hospital. I can’t move, can’t talk. I’m like, ‘why,'” Steinhauer told WCBS 880’s Marla Diamond.
