Fox News correspondent Benjamin Hall sustained injury while working in Ukraine, according to the media outlet, which noted that the journalist had been hospitalized.

"Earlier today, our correspondent Benjamin Hall was injured while newsgathering outside of Kyiv in Ukraine," Fox News Media CEO Suzanne Scott noted in a statement, according to the outlet. "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."

"The safety of our entire team of journalists in Ukraine and the surrounding regions is our top priority and of the utmost importance," Scott noted. "This is a stark reminder for all journalists who are putting their lives on the line every day to deliver the news from a war zone."

Scott asked for people to "keep Ben and his family in your prayers."

The journalist has three daughters, according to Fox News.

Russia has been waging a brutal campaign, wreaking death and destruction against Ukraine for more than two weeks, but Ukrainians have been fighting to defend their country against the onslaught.

"Just gutted thinking about our colleague Benjamin Hall who was injured today in Ukraine. Praying for him, his beautiful family and the rest of our colleagues who are out there," Bryan Llenas of Fox News tweeted.

"Benjamin Hall is a good guy and a dedicated journalist. My prayers are with him and his family," Mike Tobin of Fox News tweeted.

"Thinking about you. A great journalist, father and friend," Trey Yingst of Fox News tweeted along with a photo of himself and Hall.
