Albany, NY – While reporting on US and Iraqi security forces in January 2006, Bob Woodruff and his cameramen were seriously injured in an explosion from an improvised explosive device about 12 miles north of Iraq. He sustained severe shrapnel wounds, had a portion of his skull removed, and was kept in a medically-induced coma to assist his recovery. By March of 2006, Woodruff began to walk, recognize friends and family, and speak in several languages. He returned to work at ABC in the fall and developed a documentary about his journey and that of other soldiers with traumatic brain injury. He speaks about his current work, his new book, In An Instant, and what information he wants to get out about traumatic brain injury.
In An Instant by Lee and Bob Woodruff.
