We told you the 23-year-old former ‘Gossip Girl’ stylist and fashion blogger was horribly injured and had to have her hand amputated, but after speaking to one of her best friends, it sounds like there’s hope for a strong recovery!
Lauren Scruggs has miraculously survived after walking into a two-seater prop plane’s propellor blade on Dec. 3 and the entire world is awaiting updates on her recovery. HollywoodLife.com has just spoken to a longtime friend of Lauren’s who tells us “Lauren is making progress” but she’s still in the ICU of Dallas’ Parkland Hospital.
“She is making progress,” a friend who preferred to remain unnamed told us. “But it is a long road ahead. It is such a tragedy. She is SO beautiful inside and out.”
According to a spokesperson for the family, Lauren sustained severe head and shoulder injuries, when she turned to thank the pilot and was caught in the spinning blade. Her left hand was severed, she suffered a skull fracture, brain injury and could lose her left eye.
“After exiting a propeller plane, an accident occurred where she walked into the front of the prop,” the spokesperson posted on the website, Caring Bridge. “Struck on the left side of her body, Lauren’s hand, head, and shoulder area were hit.”
