In a tweet from hospital on Thursday, the 39-year-old British reporter shared a picture of himself with one eye bandaged, saying he felt “pretty damn lucky to still be here.”
“To sum it up, I’ve lost half a leg on one side and a foot on the other,” he said.
“One hand is being put together, one eye is no longer working, and my hearing is pretty blown… but all in all I feel pretty damn lucky to be here – and it is the people who got me here who are amazing.”
Hall and his team were reporting in Horenka, on the outskirts of Kyiv, when the vehicle they were traveling in was hit by Russian shelling on March 24.
Ukrainian producer Oleksandra Kuvshynova, 24, and Irish cameraman Pierre Zakrzewsk, 55, died at the scene, while Hall was taken to the hospital.
“It’s been over three weeks since the attack in Ukraine and I wanted to start sharing it all,” Hall wrote in his first update.
“But first I need to pay tribute to my colleagues Pierre and Sasha who didn’t make it that day.
“Pierre and I traveled the world together, working was his joy and his joy was infectious. RIP.”
