Fox News State Department correspondent Benjamin Hall made a surprise comeback on social media when he take stock of his state of health in a few tweets (which have now been deleted).
Hall survived an attack in Ukraine that killed two colleagues, Fox News cameraman Pierre Zakrzewski, 55, and Ukrainian journalist Oleksandra “Sasha” Kuvshinova, 24. The Fox News reporter shared the injuries he suffered from the attack but feels lucky to be alive.
“In summary, I lost half a leg on one side and a foot on the other. One hand is being put together, one eye is broken and my hearing is pretty amazing… but overall I feel pretty damn lucky to be here – and it’s the people who brought me here who are amazing! Hall tweeted.
Hall is currently at a military medical facility in Texas, where he has undergone numerous surgeries on his wartime injuries that the correspondent suffered in the past month.
The journalist also paid tribute to his two deceased colleagues, who did not survive that day, sharing the relationship he had with Zakrzewski.
“I must pay tribute to my colleagues Pierre and Sasha who were not present that day. Pierre and I traveled the world together, working was his joy and his joy was contagious. RIP,” Hall wrote.
