It has been a little more than a week since Lauren Scruggs, a 23-year-old model and online magazine editor, was severely injured in a plane propeller accident.
But now, after losing her arm, receiving lacerations to her face and fracturing her skull, Scruggs is showing remarkable signs of recovery and is able to lift both her eyebrows for the first time.
The parents of Scruggs told reporters that doctors were concerned about Scruggs' facial nerve, but with this new development, their prayers have been answered.
“Lauren is able to smile and lift both eyebrows on her own, such a miracle!” read a post from her family on CaringBridge.org, a site they use to update the public on her condition.
A later post stated Scruggs was able to walk on her own for the first time.
According to an article from Today.com , officials say Scruggs was moving in the darkness toward the front of the plane — possibly to thank the pilot, who was a friend of hers -- when she was struck by the still spinning propeller.
