“To sum it up, I’ve lost half a leg on one side and a foot on the other,” Hall shared in a post shared by the Washington Examiner. “One hand is being put together, one eye is no longer working, and my hearing is blown.”
“Hall was traveling inside of a vehicle on March 14 alongside cameraman and friend Pierre Zakrzewski, 55, and a Ukrainian fixer, journalist Oleksandra Kuvshynova, 24, when Russian troops opened fire on the car,” the New York Post reported.
“Fox News confirmed that Zakrzewski and Kuvshynova died of their wounds. Hall was evacuated out of the country and transported to a hospital in Texas where he underwent several surgeries for his injuries,” the report added.
