CBS Reporter Cami McCormick arrived at Walter Reed Army Medical center in Washington, D.C. at 2amET this morning and is in stable condition. She will undergo further surgery for the wounds she received and the fractures in her arms and legs.
Last week, McCormick was injured while embedded with US troops in Afghanistan when an IED exploded, killing one soldier and injuring two others. McCormick underwent surgery in Afghanistan and was transported to Germany for further treatment.
The CBS news division was briefed on her condition this morning by CBS News and Sports President Sean McManus and CBS News Radio Vice President Harvey Nagler. More details and a prognosis are expected this week.
