Bob Woodruff “Wanted To Get Out There & Report The Story”

woodruffjan302.jpg“Bob and Doug were both wearing helmets and body armor. They were standing up in the back hatch of the vehicle taping a standup, a video log of the patrol. That’s when the vehicle hit the roadside bomb,” Martha Raddatz reported on World News Tonight. ABC senior producer Kate Felsen was quoted:

“He wanted to get out there and report the story and not be locked in and taking the information from somebody else who was experiencing it.”

Felsen spoke with both men before they were airlifted to Balad.

“I spoke with both of them, Doug was conscious and I was able to reassure them we were getting them care. I spoke to Bob also and walked them to the helicopter.”
