ABC Anchor Bob Woodruff Doing Better
ABC News anchor Bob Woodruff was released from Bethesda’s National Naval Medical Center yesterday, six weeks after he was seriously wounded during a roadside bombing while on assignment in Iraq. He will spend the next few weeks at a rehab center in New York before going home, ABC News President David Westin said in an e-mail to colleagues and reporters. He said Woodruff, 44, has been up and about, joking with his family and watching the news. But “we expect months of further recuperation,” Westin said.
