Lauren Scruggs 911 Call

'I Think It Cut Her Hand Off'

1/20/2012 8:28 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF


0_xzhyps63_0_r0es1r4oTMZ has obtained the 911 tape made moments after model Lauren Scruggs walked into a moving airplane propeller in Dallas  last month ... in which you can hear, in graphic detail, the intense effort to save her life.

During the call -- made on December 3rd -- a woman tells the operator, "A girl walked into an airplane propeller ... I need an ambulance immediately."

Lauren can be heard wailing in extreme agony as the people around her scramble to her aid.

The caller can be heard asking someone in the background, "Is that her hand?"

The call continues, "I have a female that walked into an airplane prop ... I think it cut her hand off."

The caller notes, "She is on the ground, she is not moving."

The caller says Lauren is conscious and breathing and lying face down on the ground ... bleeding profusely from her head and her left arm.

Emergency crews eventually arrived to the scene and transported Lauren to a nearby hospital. Doctors were unable to save her left hand. She also lost her left eye.

Lauren was finally spotted out in public yesterday -- for the first time since the incident -- and appeared to be in good spirits.

Her recovery is said to be going well.

Harvey Levin, head of TMZ is a typical low class, money grabbing, holocaust j*w dirtbag who will do any and everything for hits to his website to generate money to keep the website thriving. There is nothing a greedy j*w wont do for money, especially at the expense of other people's tragedies and misfortunes. Just vile and disgusting. Typical j*w! SMDH...

TAKE THAT DOWN! That's a horrible thing to do. How could you make this poor girl have to re-live this? If you are this desperate for 'negative attention is better than no attention' that's really sickening!!

The prop should be not moving when passengers are entering or exiting a plane. If moving, an experienced guide/aide needs to escort passengers. Ask any competent aviation expert.

I have no interest in listening to this 911 call or even reading the article, but it's really great to see Lauren out and about. Best wishes.

Really TMZ? Let this girl and her family heal in private. I am sure if it was one of your daughters, you wouldn't want the 911 tape posted for the whole world to hear. Not in good taste!

I know we're all avoiding this question, but how the **** did she walk in to a airplane propeller?

1009 days ago


Yeah, sadly we are there people. The point where someone suffering in agony is considered entertainment.

This site was suppose to be about celebs and not murderers like Casey Anthony and horrible accidents that happen to people. This is way out of line and I wished her family could sue TMZ for putting this on here. How would you idiots on the staff on TMz like someone do this to your family?
