Lauren Scruggs Severely Injured in Plane Propeller Accident
Model, fashion blogger, and Gossip Girl wardrobe intern Lauren Scruggs was severely injured in an airplane accident in Texas this weekend, People reports.
Scruggs was reportedly climbing out of a two-seater plane and accidentally walked into its spinning propeller, suffering severe facial injuries, and eventually losing her left hand in surgery.
"After exiting a propeller plane, an accident occurred where she walked into the front of the prop," said a family spokesperson. "Struck on the left side of her body, Lauren's hand, head, and shoulder area were hit."
"Lauren's surgery went very well [Monday morning]," the statement continued.
"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."
Our thoughts are with Scruggs and her family.
