Lara Logan was admitted into a Washington, D.C. area hospital on Tuesday for issues that stem from the sexual assault she sustained while reporting on 2011’s Arab Spring.
In the midst of celebrations in Tahrir square in Egypt, Lara Logan was purposefully seperated from her crew and bodyguard.
Lara Logan was then violently assaulted by several men for about 25 minutes before she was rescued by a courageous group of Egyptian women.
After Lara Logan recovered and was able to give an interview, she said of the attack, “There was no doubt in my mind that I was in the process of dying … I thought not only am I going to die, but it’s going to be just a torturous death that’s going to go on forever.”
Lara Logan survived, but she continues to battle physical and emotional injuries from the attack.
In fact, Lara Logan has been hospitalized four times already this year, the most recent being in February when she was admitted for internal bleeding from diverticulitis and digestive problems.
A friend of Lara Logan’s, Ed Butowsky, told Breitbart, “Very few people know how stoic and incredibly tough this lady is. In spite of everything she’s had to face in the last two years, people have no idea the physical suffering she has been enduring due to the brutal sexual assault she encountered in Egypt during the Arab Spring while reporting for 60 Minutes.”
He added, “I’ve been in and around this business and people don’t understand how hard reporters work and how much time they put in. Lara, above all of it, has been doing it for four years since this brutal attack and suffering in every way, shape or form. Maybe it’s time for people to realize these people are human beings.”
