An improvised explosive device hit a Unites States Army vehicle in Logar Province in Afghanistan on August 28, 2009, killing one U.S. soldier and injuring CBS Radio news correspondent Cami McCormick, CBS reported on its Web site.
McCormick, an award-winning foreign correspondent, was travelling with the United States Army when their vehicle was hit, CBS said. The journalist was initially treated at a field hospital, where she underwent surgery for injuries to her spine, arms, and legs, and was then transported to Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan for additional treatment, according to CBS.
She was later transported to the Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C., where she was in a stable condition, news reports said.
