As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Lauren Scruggs was exiting a small two-seater plane at a private airport in McKinney, Texas, three years ago when she moved too close to the plane’s propeller. The propeller struck the left side of her head and body, causing injuries to her head, hand and, shoulder. Doctors had to amputate her left hand. Weeks later, she also lost her left eye. Scruggs underwent facial reconstruction surgery following the accident, and she has since received a prosthetic hand and eye.
