Fox News State Department correspondent Benjamin Hall, who was on assignment in Ukraine and severely injured in an attack that killed two Fox News colleagues—cameraman Pierre Zakrzewski and network consultant/Ukrainian journalist Oleksandra “Sasha” Kuvshynova—is now “safe and out of Ukraine,” Fox News Media CEO Suzanne Scott told employees, reports TV Newser.
“We have an update on our colleague Benjamin Hall who was seriously injured while reporting outside of Kyiv on Monday. He is now safe and out of Ukraine,” Scott said Wednesday morning in a staff memo. “Ben is alert and in good spirits. He is being treated with the best possible care in the world and we are in close contact with his wife and family. Please continue to keep him in your prayers.”
Scott, Zakrzewski and Kuvshynova had been on assignment in Horenka, outside of Ukraine’s capital, Kyiv, when their vehicle was struck by incoming fire. Zakrzewski and Kuvshynova were killed.
