If a person jaywalks across a busy highway and is killed by a vehicle (this happens freqently), one would conclude that the person killed is not too bright and not too aware.
Likewise, Lolo was not too bright to walk straight into the propeller of a plane, (duh) and not too aware of her surroundings to stop herself, even if she initially forgot that planes have propellers.
I find it repulsive that the family is possibly suing the pilot and airport. Just own up to the fact that your daughter is not too bright and not too aware.

1st let me say i’m so sorry for her to have to go through this. what kind of universe lets people suffer like this?!!

however….

wow. how very “christian” of them to sue sue sue! lol!

sure the pilot should have turned off the plane but HELLO who doesn’t remember that there’s a spinning prop attached to a damn plane?? it’s called taking accountability for your own actions.

i’m so tired of these types of people, pushing their fairy tale cults/religions on everyone (like they’ve got proof or something), acting all higher & mightier than everyone else (just because they choose to mindlessly follow a religion instead of thinking for themselves), then of course hypocritically pulling crap like this. how typical. ick!

Does anyone know if she was under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time of the accident? Serious question

I could not agree more. While this is a horrible situation, Laurenwas completely responsible fir this. She knew she was on a prop plane, and she should gave been more aware of where she was standing. I am so sick of people not owning up to their responsibly and accepting the consequences of their actions. She turned into the blade, the pilot did not make her walk into that proprellor. If the family wants to sue someone they need to look no further than their daughter. Wake up America, you are the ones is responsible for your actions, if you do something stupid that causes you harm, accept it and move own, quit trying ti hold someone else accountable for you’d own stupidity.

While I do feel sorry for Lauren Scruggs, this was a horrific accident. Whatever happened to personal responsibility? Her family is looking at taking legal action against the pilot? Really? I understand it was dark when the accident happened, I truly believe it was Laurens fault and only Lauren’s fault. Whereever you are, you need to be aware of your surroundings. This remindse of the lady that sued McDonalds because she put her coffee between her legs them spilled it. Where is the personal responsibility? It is not the pilots fault that poor Lauren wasnt paying attention. Don’t get me wrong, I really feel bad for her and her family. I have been praying for her and I hope she does recover. She sounds like an amazing person with a beautiful heart. But the person that was responsible for this tragic accident was Lauren, herself.

I’m in rage by some of the ignorant and imbecilic comments by most of the people.
She is NOT at fault for what happened, but the careless and irresponsible pilot.
He should’ve had turned OFF the airplane before let any passenger leave. He is the one responsible for this awful tragedy.
Now, you cold and cruel people should think before you write your foolish comments; do your “homework” and search for safety actions a pilot MUST take before he/she let the passenger walk out of a plane, especially a small one.

This just smacks of greed “her parents are starting to focus their attention on who should be held accountable for her injuries.”
SHE walked into the propeller. How many other accidents of people leaving planes have walked into propellers at this airport?
Check it out yourself – Lauren was the first.
There’s no negligence here on anyone’s part of Lauren’s.

You People are so very very rude, keep your nasty opinions to yourself, A girl could have lost her life, think bout that instead of calling her names and pointing fingers, and I bet all the money in the world everyone of you rude people would sue in a heart beat. And if you read they are not looking for money they want to make sure it don’t happen again to someone else. Plus none of you know why that blade was still going. GROW UP!!!!!!!!

Im sure most people feel bad for her, but she doesn’t deserve compensation for her own actions. This country has turned into a joke because of people like her family who think the deserve 20 mil for something when they should be responsible for themselves!!!!

“her parents are starting to focus their attention on who should be held accountable for her injuries.” umm HER! Regardless of what anyone says about one not following safety protocols… SHE WALKED INTO THE DAMN PROPELLER. She should know better but apparently for some it takes a horrific accident like this to gain some common sense! Don’t get me wrong, I feel bad for her but this to me is just plain stupidity.

What the heck? Guess the plane was moving when she turned back? She was a bit too close to turn back, but the dude in the plane likely wasn’t following proper saftey protocols considering a person lost a hand and half her face.

How thick do you have to be to walk into an aircraft propellor? The reason it’s so rare is because almost every logical, rational and intelligent person on planet earth knows one thing; stay the heck away from an aircraft prop, it’s noisy and spinning fast which = danger… really it’s not that complicated. Good grief.

Why wouldn’t a pilot turn the engine off when letting people on and off a plane. There should be safety measures. I don’t think it’s her fault. I’ve never seen people exit a plane while the propellers are still in motion

I agree, this was Laurens fault. The family will probably decide to sue “to keep anyone else from being injured in this way”. That’s a lot of B.S. According to the reports I’ve seen, she turned and CAME BACK! How is that anyone’s fault but her own.

happens all the time, engines running and getting out of a plane. Difference – most people are very conscious of the spinning blades.

This was Lauren’s fault. She wasn’t paying attention to what she was doing. I guess they are going to blame the airport for not having sufficient lighting, or the pilot for not turning the plane off.

Attorneys will try and make money off anything. Then if they don’t win the case that they assured their client they would win, the client is presented with a hefty bill.

1) airport for ground rules; 2) pilot for saftey precautions; 3) plan manufacturer for design flaw.

Criminy but you people are heartless. ANYONE can do something stupid, but that doesn’t mean they’re a moron. Are all of you perfect? If you were to get injured because of YOUR own negligence but on equipment that shouldn’t be running when people are around, you can NOT tell me you’d say “Oops, my bad” and not try to take steps to ensure that it didn’t happen again to someone else. If you lost a hand and had severe injuries to your shoulder and face/head, you can NOT tell me you wouldn’t want some basic human kindness and decency even if you WERE kinda dumb to do such a thing. For cripe’s sake, the girl is 23. She was probably excited and not thinking, not familiar with the plane. It was dark, and the propellor was not louder than the engine. She had a moment of poor judgment… WHO HASN’T? You’re all despicable and I hope if you’re ever in a similar situation, someone says these things to you that you’ve been saying about Lauren. Pathetic, the lot of you.

Ok first the parents say they don’t blame the pilot, a family friend. Now they decide there is money to be made out of this. They claim it is to make sure no one else is a victim of this type of accident. Give me a break, you think we are all stupid? This is all over the news-you think someone else is going to walk into a propeller again? You want to get money out of this-period and throw the pilot under the bus. You have a fund for the public to pay for the hospital bills and now you are wanting to sue your friend. He was probably doing this to be nice and now he is the bad guy. With friends like you-who needs enemies? Do you read your Bible? What is said about suing people???? What is said about suing other believers????

What is wrong with her parents? This was a FREAK accident… Not some victim of tragic teenage car accident where the family can go around high school to high school informing kids the dangers of texting and driving. This isn’t some all star athlete who was paralyzed in a football game only to walk again a few yeears later… This isn’t some celebrity already noted for fame. This was a pretty normal girl with her own fun fashion blog.

This is a young women… just out of college… if not still in school for Communications. Her entire life has been built on her looks, no offence, but I was a broadcasting major. They are on camera for a living. Her face was mutilated.

After the drugs ware off, her injuries heals, and the media has moved on to the next sensationalized story… Even with plastic surgery… It will be a very long time before she looks normal again and this girl has probably never been ugly in her life.

I hope she is as strong as her parents say she is… like they have all been saying… This is going to be a LONG recovery…
