ABC News President David Westin said this morning that the plane carrying injured anchor Bob Woodruff and cameraman Doug Vogt, as well as a number of injured American servicemen left Germany at about 6:45 a.m. ET today:
“Both Bob and Doug continue on their upward progress. Doug was up and conversing this morning. Bob continues to be heavily sedated and may be for a time. But the doctors are encouraged by the continued progress he made overnight. It will still likely be some time before we have a complete sense of the injuries, but with each day there are promising signs. As before, we have a very long way to go. But, we appear to be headed in the right direction.
“Bob and Doug will be arriving in Washington this evening and will be transported to Bethesda for further observation and treatment.”
ABC News will continue to provide updates on their condition as they become available.
