Fox News’ reporter severely injured in Kyiv makes emotional return to live TV, shares what saved his life

Fox News foreign correspondent Benjamin Hall appeared Thursday on “Fox & Friends,” his first live television appearance since nearly losing his life in a March 2022 attack outside Kyiv that killed two of his colleagues.

Offering a message of hope while telling viewers to “never give up,” Hall shared an emotional testimony about how a vision of his three daughters saved his life after he was severely injured while reporting on Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Hall was wounded when the vehicle he was traveling in was struck by incoming fire. Fox News photojournalist Pierre Zakrzewski and Ukrainian journalist Oleksandra “Sasha” Kuvshynova were killed in the attack.

Asked by the “Fox & Friends” morning crew to read the emotional excerpt from his upcoming memoir, “Saved: A War Reporter’s Mission To Make It Home,” Hall began by describing how “everything went dark” as bombs rained down.

“If I had the slightest iota of consciousness, it was a distant sense of shock waves and the feeling that every part of my body – bones, organs, sinew, my soul – had been knocked out of me,” Hall read. “I did not exist, except as part of the nothingness. I was all but dead. But improbably, out of this crippling nothingness, a figure came through, and I heard a familiar voice, as real as anything I’d ever known. ‘Daddy, you’ve got to get out of the car.’”

“I opened my eyes and managed to crawl out of the car and the third bomb hit the car itself,” he continued, after explaining that he saw a vision of his daughters at that critical moment. “If it weren’t for them bringing me back, there is no way I would be here today.”

Hall also credited Zakrzewski for saving his life, sharing, “The two of us laid there for about 40 minutes, and talked — he passed away, but the journey to continue was about me being saved.”

Despite such a harrowing experience, Hall has a refreshingly positive attitude.

“I think that when you’ve gone through something like I’ve gone through, the highs, the lows, you have to have a target, you have to get something to fight for. And this is it, trying to get back, trying to speak to you, trying to be on air and trying to tell people the stories, so perhaps it can help them,” he said.

“I’ve got one leg, I’ve got no feet, I see through one eye, one workable hand. I was burned all over, and I feel strong, I feel more confident than I ever have,” Hall added. “I think that you learn a lot going through things like this, and I was surrounded by so many wonderful people – that’s why I’m here today, and I look forward to everything that comes ahead.”
