Lauren Scruggs, Fashion Model and Blogger, Severely Injured in Propeller Accident

by at . Comments

Lauren Scruggs, a model and celebrity fashion blogger, suffered severe injuries after she accidentally walked into a spinning airplane propeller in Texas on Saturday.

Scruggs, 23, who runs the fashion blog LOLO and worked in the wardrobe department of Gossip Girl, was climbing out of a two-seater plane in McKinney, Tex.

She lost her left hand in the accident and suffered major injuries to her face as well. The hand was amputated by surgeons and the FAA is investigating further.

"Struck on the left side of her body, Lauren's hand, head, and shoulder area were hit," a family spokesperson who posted on the website Caring Bridge said.

"After exiting a propeller plane, an accident occurred where she walked into the front of the prop," the post reads. "Lauren's surgery went very well this morning."

"She is now resting in ICU with the family. She is able to open her right eye to see while her left eye is still bandaged. Please continue to pray for the vision of her left eye, as we will not know the status of her sight for some time."

She was flying around the state to look at Christmas lights. We wish her the best and hope that she's able to recover from this as fully and quickly as possible.

No matter that I did not finish the training, because of a freak accident (the instructor sitting behind me lost control of the stick, and he was helping with accelerator, and rudder, I made an emergency landing with a crosswind at the 12th attempt), the rule of the thumb is, land, taxi, park, shut off engine and get out of the plane.

That is devastating. I wish her a successful recovery. I cant believe she was even able to go near a propeller while exiting a plane..it should have been off before the passenger gets off i think. This poor girl.
