Why Was Santa Elena’s German Flores Beaten into Coma?

German Flores

Twenty-seven-year-old German Flores, a resident of Hill View area in Santa Elena, is clinging to life at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital tonight, after being beaten to a bloody pulp over the weekend by a pair of attackers.  Flores was on his way home in the wee early hours of Sunday morning when he was accosted by two men who physically assaulted and struck him repeatedly over the head with a rock.  The near-fatal beat down has left Flores unconscious at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital and his mother is desperately searching for answers.  This morning, Sandra Lopez told News Five that while her son has a drinking problem he’s not known as a troublemaker in that community.
