Lauren Scruggs -- the model who suffered gruesome injuries in a plane propeller accident last year -- celebrated her 24th birthday and showed off her new prosthetic arm in Texas on Wednesday.

Last December, Scruggs lost her left hand and left eye after accidentally walking into an airplane propeller. She has been undergoing extensive rehab and a few months ago settled with the airplane insurance company for an undisclosed amount.

Despite the terrible circumstances of the accident, Lauren appears to be moving forward with her life. Happy Birthday, indeed.

Yup    

While I'm really happy about her progress & how well she's doing, I'm a little confused about what she settled with the insurance company over. She made a mistake & walked into the planes moving propellor; how is that in any way the fault of the pilot, the airline or the plane manufacturer?

In my opinion airplanes should shut off their engines before disembarking passengers. "Watch out for spinning propeller!" doesn't quite cut it with me!

She looks great. What a strong woman to overcome so much. Especially when you consider she's in such a shallow industry where women often have a lot of self esteem issues.

I can see it now, she is at an airport the wind blows her hat off she chases after it right in front of a Big jet taking off, squoosh.

This idiot wrote a book too. She is really trying to cash in on her ordeal. I would wonder if she used any of her settlement money to pay back all the people who donated money to her for her medical bills, but I am pretty sure I know the answer to that.
