Newsman Bob Woodruff Returns to Iraq Roadside Where a Bomb Nearly Killed Him

From an AP story by David Bauder headlined “Bob Woodruff returns to Iraq roadside where bomb nearly killed him”:

The physical pain of nearly dying when shrapnel from a roadside bomb in Iraq tore through his head 17 years ago was hard enough for ABC newsman Bob Woodruff.

Mentally, it was even worse.

That’s evident in talking to Woodruff and watching as he takes television viewers on a journey to where his life changed in an instant on Jan. 29, 2006. His first time back to Taji, Iraq, is chronicled in “After the Blast: The Will to Survive,” which airs on ABC Friday at 8 p.m.
