Fox News' Benjamin Hall makes public severe injuries in deadly attack while reporting in Ukraine
Attack occurred March 14 near the Ukraine capital city of Kyiv
Fox News correspondent Benjamin Hall, injured in a deadly attack last month in Ukraine while reporting on the Russia invasion, on Thursday evening made a public statement about his severe injuries including those on both of his legs.
"To sum it up, I’ve lost half a leg on one side and a foot on the other," he tweeted. "One hand is being put together, one eye is no longer working, and my hearing is pretty blown… but all in all, I feel pretty damn lucky to be here – and it is the people who got me here who are amazing!"
Hall colleagues Pierre Zakrzewski, a Fox News cameraman, and Ukrainian journalist Oleksandra "Sasha" Kuvshinova were killed in the March 14 attack near the Ukraine capital city of Kyiv.
Hall, a State Department correspondent for the cable news network, was rescued after the attack and flown to a hospital in Germany, then transferred to a premier military medical facility in Texas where he has undergone multiple surgeries, Fox News reports.
"I need to pay tribute to my colleagues Pierre and Sasha who didn't make it that day," Hall also wrote in the tweet. "Pierre and I traveled the world together, working was his joy and his joy was infectious. RIP."
