Lauren Scruggs' ex-boyfriend predicted plane horror

6/13/2014

Model Lauren Scruggs' ex-boyfriend predicted "something bad" would happen to the beauty before she lost an eye and a hand in a horrific plane accident last year (11). The pretty blonde split from her partner, identified only as James, just a month before she suffered gruesome injuries in December (11) after walking into an airplane propeller in Texas. Scruggs, who was fitted with prosthetics and underwent extensive rehab treatment, has now revealed she was left frightened on the day of the flight after remembering comments James had made to her. She tells Britain's Glamour magazine, "Sitting in the passenger seat of a friend's two-seater plane, I stared at the Christmas lights below and shivered. My breathing had become shallow, and I felt an overwhelming sense of panic. "The words of my ex-boyfriend, James, rang in my ears: 'Promise me you'll be careful, Lo. I can't explain it, but I have this feeling like something bad is coming your way'. When the plane touched down minutes later, I heaved a sigh of relief. We were safe. Or so I thought. "I stepped onto the ground and, in a split second, my life changed forever. The left side of my body was hit by one of the plane's propellers, and I fell to the ground in a pool of blood." However, Scruggs insists she is focusing on the future following the accident: "I was later told just one sixteenth of an inch either way could've made the difference between never being hit or dying instantly. I still struggle to comprehend how my life could have gone either way. I believe the best thing we can do is stop questioning why certain things happen and simply live the life that unfolds in front of us."
