Blonde Model walks into propeller blades and survives

Lauren Scruggs, Model, Walks Into Plane Propeller, Survives

A 23-year-old model and fashion editor is lucky to be alive after she accidentally walked into a small plane's propeller on Saturday.

Lauren Scruggs, of Plano, Texas, was getting off a small private plane after looking at Christmas lights around the area when she walked into the moving propeller, Fox Dallas reports.

Scruggs' left hand was severed, and she suffered eye, shoulder and head injuries. She is now recovering at Parkland Hospital in Dallas, according to ABC News.

The fashion blogger of Lolo.com (and celebrity interviewer -- she interned on the set of "Gossip Girl") underwent several surgeries over the weekend. The extent of her brain injury is unknown at this time, a family spokesman told ABC News.

Lauren's parents spoke with "Good Morning America" on Tuesday. "Yesterday was a good day, there was a lot of really positive progress," Lauren's father Jeff told "GMA." "They took out her tube in the afternoon. She didn't speak right away ... I said Lauren will you say 'hi' to Daddy, and she goes, 'Hi.' Later she told one of Cheryl's sisters that she loves her. It's so encouraging to us. She's really uncomfortable as you can imagine."

It's unknown how Scruggs walked into the propeller, but her father thinks that she was going up to the cockpit to thank the pilot, saying, "She would have been grateful for him taking her up to see the Christmas lights around Dallas."

ABC News aviation consultant John Nance told the program that accidents like Scruggs' are "extremely rare." "It sounds like this is a combination of a bad procedure by the pilot and the passenger not properly realizing her proximity. One of the things I'd have to look at is why in the world a pilot permitted a passenger to board or deboard while a propeller was turning," Nance added.

Fox Dallas reports that the FAA is looking into the incident.

Sounds like she'll be able to get back to work in a couple days.

Re: Blonde Model walks into propeller blades and survives

Was she texting and not watching where she was going?

I doubt this incident will propel her career much.

Just further proof of the "dumb blondes" fact. Seems like it even holds true with peroxide treated ones.

Fortunately, she has a twin sister, so the world of modelling won't have to suffer any losses from this incident:

I figured this response would come out eventually. Sorry, but based on pictures I've seen, she's not an attractive woman...especially if she calls herself a model. And yes, I can say, without question, that every woman I've had carnal knowlege of, has been more attractive than her. I'm sure she's a perfectly nice person, but she just isn't nice looking.

You owe me a new shirt, after I spit up my drink all over the front of it while reading your post

Do Christmas lights look good from the air? Have I been missing out on something?

This is how she learned that the airport turnstile is HORIZONTAL ... and it's over there by the ticket desk.
