Model Lauren Scruggs

EXCLUSIVE

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.

That's the Cadillac of arms... Why was the manufacturer negligent? Was the propeller too fast?

I'd really like her to give me a handy-j with the fake arm.

Thats whats wrong with this country. SHE walks into an airplane blade on accident...Yet, she gets paid alot of money for doing so. No one forced her into the spinning blade, it was her own dumbness...Yet she gets paid because of it by the airline.

I still dont' understand how its the airplane co's fault when she walked into the propeller. I think I would notice the propeller twirling at the front of the airplane I just got off of, heck I would notice on a airplane I hadn't just got off of!

There's a problem here    

Nice arm. Just think, if she hadn't been so self-centered, probably trying to turn someone's attention to herself, she would have done as she was advised and waked BEHIND THE PLANE WHILE THE ENGINE WAS RUNNING; HENCE, THE PROPELLER WAS SPINNING. If I was someone on the ground who came to her aid I would sue her for me having to live with what she looked like after her stupidity sliced and diced some of her body. If she would have been so damn stupid we would never have heard of her.

Is she still an idiot? That's what she should be working on.

The best think that ever happened to her was walking into a running propeller. I have never heard of her, and now we get to celebrate her stupidity, I mean birthday.

Glad she's doing better, it's gotta suck to walk into a propeller and go through that pain, trauma and realization.
