It's been roughly six weeks since 23-year-old model and blogger Lauren Scruggs accidentally walked into a plane's propellers while taking a tour of Christmas lights around Texas.

The young beauty lost her left eye and hand in the horrific accident. Now the first public photos (courtesy of TMZ) of Lauren have emerged. She is seen leaving a Dallas-area rehabilitation clinic with her family (click over to TMZ to see).

Earlier this week, the pilot admitted to the NTSB that he had left the propeller running after landing, but he "leaned out of his seat and placed his right hand and arm in front of her to divert her away from the front of the airplane and the propeller."
