Model Scruggs has eye removed after plane accident

Dec 15, 2011 | 12:15pm EST

The 23-year-old blonde lost one of her hands and sustained severe head and shoulder injuries after walking into the spinning blades of a two-seater plane in Texas on 3 December (11).

She underwent surgery to save the sight in her eye, but the operation was unsuccessful and doctors were forced to remove the eye on Wednesday (14Dec11).

However, her mother Cheryl insists Scruggs, who began walking again just four days after the horrific incident, is coping well.

She says, "Lauren is recovering remarkably well, given the circumstances. The doctors are very pleased with her progress."
