Benjamin Hall is back —and he has an incredible story to tell.
During a recent appearance on Fox & Friends, Hall, who was nearly killed while covering Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, says he is “more confident” than ever and happy to be back on the air speaking to America.
Hall talked about his recovery and his upcoming book: Saved: A War Reporter’s Mission To Make It Home.
“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,” Hall said in his first TV appearance since the March 2022 attack.
“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 continued.
“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.”
Hall read an emotional excerpt from his upcoming book on the air, describing how “everything went dark” as bombs went off around him.
“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 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.’”
Hall expressed his gratitude for the outpouring of support from Fox News viewers.
“When people reach out and tell you they’re thinking about you, they’re praying for you, that gives you support as well, so for anyone else who is going through really difficult things, keep going. Never give up. It’s inside you, and it’s always good on the other side,” Hall said.
