Fox News journalist Benjamin Hall was seriously injured in Ukraine on Monday while covering the Russian invasion.
"Earlier today, our correspondent Benjamin Hall was injured while newsgathering outside of Kyiv in Ukraine," Fox News Media CEO Suzanne Scott said in a statement.
"We have a minimal level of details right now, but Ben is hospitalized and our teams on the ground are working to gather additional information as the situation quickly unfolds."
Meanwhile, while talking about the incident on air, television host John Roberts said, “This is news that we hate to pass along to you, but it sometimes happens in the middle of a conflict."
Roberts said on Monday afternoon that the network had "very few details" and that teams on the ground were "working to gather more information."
"The safety of our Fox team is of the utmost importance and our highest priority. More on this as we get it," Roberts said.
Hall, who is a father of four, joined Fox News in 2015 and is currently serving as Fox's State Department correspondent.
