Woodruff, Cameraman Out of Surgery and in Stable Condition

January 29, 2006 - Posted at 4:33 p.m.

NEW YORK (AP) _ ABC News co-anchor Bob Woodruff and a

cameraman are reported in stable condition after surgery following

a roadside bombing in Iraq.

Woodruff and Doug Vogt were riding in an Iraqi Army

vehicle when it was attacked 12 miles north of Baghdad.

They underwent surgery for head injuries at a U-S military

hospital nearby. They are expected to be transferred to medical

facilities in Landstuhl, Germany, possibly overnight.

ABC News President David Westin said the developments are seen

as ``good news.'' But he says the next few days ``will be

critical.''
