Fox News correspondent Benjamin Hall, who was badly injured during a March 14 shelling outside Kyiv that killed two of his colleagues,
shared his first update about the extent of his injuries in a pair of social media posts on Thursday night.
“To sum it up, I’ve lost half a leg on one side and a foot on the other,” said Hall,
a State Department correspondent who had been on the ground in Ukraine to cover the Russian invasion.
“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.”
He shared a photo of himself, heavily bandaged and wearing a patch over his left eye.
He also paid tribute to veteran Fox News cameraman Pierre Zakrzewski and to a Ukrainian fixer for the network,
Oleksandra Kuvshynova, both of whom were killed. It has not yet been established who was responsible for the shelling,
but the Ukrainian Defense Ministry attributed the deaths at the time to Russian forces.
