Benjamin Hall: “I Feel Pretty Damn Lucky to Be Here”

Fox News State Department correspondent Benjamin Hall made a surprise return to social media when he provided an update on his health status in a couple of tweets (which have now been deleted). 

Hall survived an attack in Ukraine that saw two coworkers killed, Fox News cameraman Pierre Zakrzewski, age 55, and Ukrainian journalist Oleksandra “Sasha” Kuvshinova, age 24. The Fox News reporter shared the injuries he sustained due to the attack but feels lucky to be alive.

“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!” Hall tweeted.

Hall is currently in a Texas military medical facility, where he has undergone numerous surgeries on his war wounds which the correspondent sustained last month.

The reporter also paid tribute to his two fallen colleagues, who didn’t survive that day, sharing the relationship that he had with Zakrzewski. 

“I need to pay tribute to my colleagues Pierre and Sasha who didn’t make it that day. Pierre and I traveled the world together, working was his joy and his joy was infectious. RIP,” Hall wrote.
