LOS ANGELES (AP) — The family of a San Francisco 49ers fan who suffered a traumatic brain injury after being punched outside SoFi Stadium last weekend said he remains in a coma Saturday.

Daniel Luna was put into a medically induced coma after he was punched, fell and struck his head on the ground during the NFC championship game between the 49ers and the Los Angeles Rams.

Authorities arrested a man Friday for an investigation of assault.

Luna's family said he "has a long road ahead of him" and urged anyone who witnessed the altercation to come forward. They said they want to make sure NFL events are safe and secure for everyone.
