The FOX Reporter Hideously Injured In Ukraine Just Made A Heartbreaking Announcement..

On Thursday night, Fox News reporter Benjamin Hall made his first comment since he and his crew came under attack last month while covering the war in Ukraine. He detailed his serious injuries but said he feels lucky to be alive.

These are devastating injuries, and his life will radically change in many ways because of them. But he is blessed to be alive.

The New York Post reports detailed Hall’s experience in Ukraine:

On March 14, Hall was traveling in a car in Horenka, Ukraine, outside the capital city of Kyiv, with Fox cameraman Pierre Zakrzewski and his Ukrainian producer, journalist Oleksandra “Sasha” Kuvshynova, when their vehicle came under fire from Russian troops.

Zakrzewski, 55, and Kuvshynova, 24, died from their injuries. Hall, seriously wounded, was evacuated from Ukraine and flown to a Texas hospital.

Very little was reported about Hall’s condition other than that he’d been evacuated and that he was safe.

In a now-deleted tweet that included a photo of himself laying on a stretcher with a patch over his left eye, Hall tweeted just how severely he was injured. He wrote:

“To sum it up, I’ve lost half a leg on one side and a foot on the other. 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!”

Before giving his own update, Hall started with a tweet about his fallen colleagues, writing:

“Its been over three weeks since the attack in Ukraine and I wanted to start sharing it all. But first I need to pay tribute to my colleagues Pierre and Sasha who didnt make it that day. Pierre and I traveled the world together, working was his joy and his joy was infectious. RIP.”

The Daily Mail reported:

Hall, 39, has been married to Alicia Meller, an Australian fashion businesswoman, for almost seven years and the couple has three daughters. The family lives in Washington, D.C.

Hall, a dual citizen of Britain and the U.S., has worked for Fox News since 2015.

According to The Mail, he has previously “worked for the BBC, ITN, and Channel 4 and written for The Times, The Sunday Times, The New York Times, and Agence France Presse.”

With the help of Fox News journalists, the Pentagon, and a team of specialists, the badly injured Hall was able to be evacuated out of Ukraine. He was treated in a hospital in Germany and is now at a medical center in Texas.

There has been an outpouring of support from media figures across many networks, including CNN, BBC, and The Washington Post following Hall’s now-deleted tweet, Newsweek reported.
