Model Lauren Scruggs

FIRST PHOTO

Since Horrific Plane Accident

1/18/2012 1:50 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0118_stern_rehabFor the first time since accidentally walking into a spinning plane propeller last month, model Lauren Scruggs was pictured in seemingly good spirits as she left a Dallas hospital with her parents on Tuesday.

The 23-year-old lost her left eye and left hand in the horrific Dec. 3rd accident and has been undergoing extensive rehab.

According to a federal report just released, the pilot of the plane claims he attempted to warn Scruggs about the propeller and guide her to safety. When he thought she was out of harm's way he returned to his seat, only to then hear someone scream, "Stop, Stop."

Despite everything she's gone through, Scruggs is said to be making remarkable progress.

She looks alot better than I thought she would. The media made it sound like the propeller ripped her whole face off and ripped up her whole body. With reconstructive surgery she will look pretty good.

She looks good but you should leave her alone until she is ready. I don't think i would appreciate having my picture taken so soon after an incident like this. She does look really good though.

SHE LOOKS TONS BETTER THAN I THOT SHE WOULD... WITH PLASTIC SURGERY, FAKE EYE, ETC. ET AL, SHE CAN STILL MODEL. TRUST, SHE WILL STILL DO IT. IN FACT, IT WILL EXPAND HER OPPORTUNITIES INTO PHYSICALLY DISADVANTAGED ADS AND COMMERCIALS. #TRUTH!!

TMZ's censor checker can censor out Andy D.I.C.K.S name but is unable to censor out Wholesale Nike Shoez $39 or a web site from posting on the comments. Come on Harvey, come on here and see for yourself what goes on????

This is totally out of line TMZ. This poor girl experienced such a horrible accident and your only concern is not her well being but how she looks.

Leave her alone until she is ready to come out. She has suffered enough.

She is very lucky to have survived.Wish her the best. A fourteen year old got off a Twin Osprey in Raeford NC after she talked them into letting her go up to watch skydivers jump in the late 90s and she walked into the prop and killed her instantly. Not too long after that a sky diver landed in the road there and was killed instantly by a transfer truck.

RAEFORD, N.C. — A Duke University graduate student making her first parachute jump died when she missed the drop zone and crashed into a tractor-trailer on a nearby highway, authorities said.

Alison Jean Yount, 27, overshot a field where she was supposed to land Tuesday afternoon and struck the truck, said Trooper Eric Pender.

She was thrown 23 feet into a ditch, Pender said, and was declared dead 90 minutes later at Womack Army Medical Center.

Yount took a seven-hour course before deciding to take a solo jump at Raeford Skydiving Service at the Raeford Airport, according to instructor John Tippy. She could have opted for a tandem jump, with an instructor diving with her.

As she descended, she didn't react properly to two instructors who had jumped with her, said Tippy, who was one of the instructors.

Tippy didn't know what went wrong. ``It's really hard to say. Some people pay attention and some don't. It's a real hard call. It looked like she was trying to land beside the road.''

Yount was unable to control her parachute after it opened, Tippy said.

Pender said Yount lived with her husband in Durham.

The accident is the second fatality this year linked to a skydiving company at the airport. On April 27, a 14-year-old girl was killed when she stepped off an airplane and walked into the propeller. That plane was owned by Freefall Express, a skydiving company.

Yup, you just know the carpet matches the drapes on that one. 100% pure blonde. Who walks into a propeller? Durp, here's her sign.

The fact that the pilot is even being dragged through the media is a shame. Hopefully she steps up shortly and takes FULL resposibility for what happened. It is very tragic and I wish her the best but I don't think anyone over the age of ten needs to be told to not walk directly into a spinning propeller.
