Bob Woodruff was born and raised in Birmingham, Graduated from Cranbrook. His parents still live in B'ham as I understand it. They attend Christ Church Cranbrook.
I don't know anything further, heard that on WXYZ news.

His brother, former teachers, and some high school friends also still live in the area and have been interviewed by local media.

I had the opportunity to meet Woodruff a couple of years ago and found him to be an extraordinary person.

Thanks for the info. May he recover soon.
He went to New York to be a lawyer and journalism is his second career. He's just 44 yrs. old and has made it to the top.
