Fox News Ukraine War Reporter’s Miraculous Survival

Benjamin Hall, a war correspondent for Fox News, recently released a memoir recounting his harrowing experience in the Ukraine conflict. On March 14, 2022, Hall, accompanied by his Fox News cameraman Pierre Zakrzewski, 55, and Ukrainian fixer Oleksandra “Sasha” Kuvshynova, 24, were in the Ukrainian village of Horenka when an explosion rocked the area. Hall was catastrophically injured by the blast, which took the life of Zakrzewski and Kuvshynova.

In addition to his blown-up legs and injured hands, matchbox-size shrapnel from the blasts had lodged in his eye and neck. Despite his injuries, Hall was able to flag down a car and get himself to a hospital. He was then evacuated to Germany and later transferred to Brooke Army Medical Center in Texas, where he underwent 30 surgeries. As a result of his injuries, Hall had to have his right leg amputated below the knee, as well as his left foot. He also needed reconstructive surgery on his left hand and now has no sight in his left eye, which he eventually lost.

Hall credits his survival to a visit from his daughter, Honor, 7, whom he heard in his mind telling him to “get out of the car.” He believes this visit saved his life. Despite his struggles, Hall has never lost hope that his best days are yet to come. He recently returned to Fox News and released his memoir, “Saved: A War Reporter’s Mission to Make It Home,” which details his assignments in Syria, Iraq, and Afghanistan prior to his fateful assignment in Ukraine.

Hall also shares his progress on Instagram, urging visitors to “aim to get a little better every day.” He hopes that sharing his story will spread positive hope. He also wants to honor his fallen friends, Zakrzewski and Kuvshynova, and the countless other victims of the Ukraine conflict. Hall believes that his experience has given him a greater sense of purpose and encourages others to make the most of their lives.
