Fox News’ Benjamin Hall Makes First Statement Since Being Badly Injured In Ukraine

By A.J. Katz 

Fox News State Department correspondent Benjamin Hall has been recovering at a military medical center in Texas from injuries he suffered after he and his crew were attacked last month while reporting in Ukraine. His colleagues Fox News cameraman Pierre Zakrzewski and consulting producer Oleksandra “Sasha” Kuvshynova were killed during that attack.

Hall appears to be in good spirits, has a great outlook, but it’s going to be a difficult road.

On Thursday evening, he made his first public statement since the attack on Twitter:


“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!”

TV newsers from across networks have been showing support for Hall in response to his tweet. Below, some examples:

Hall also shared a tribute to his late colleague, the aforementioned Pierre Zakrzewski.

Hannity also covered the tweets during his 9 p.m. show, not long after Hall posted them:
