Fox News State Department correspondent Benjamin Hall, who was seriously injured in Ukraine last month, said that he has lost half of one leg as well as the foot on his other leg — one of his eyes has also ceased functioning.
Hall also issued a tweet mentioning two people who were killed in the attack that left him heavily wounded.
“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,” Hall tweeted on Thursday evening.
Hall was referring to Ukrainian journalist Oleksandra “Sasha” Kuvshinova, who had been working as a consultant for the media outlet, and Fox News cameraman Pierre Zakrzewski.
“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 said in another tweet.
According to Fox News, Hall is the father of three young daughters.
A number of Fox News figures responded to Hall’s tweet.
