Lindsay Lohan Nearly Loses Finger
Weeks after calling off her engagement to Russian businessman Egor Tarabasov, Lindsay Lohan has suffered another mishap.
The actress has undergone surgery to fix her almost severed finger, which was injured in a freak boating accident off the coast of Turkey last week.
She revealed on her Snapchat account, a photo of her bandaged ring finger on Sunday 2 October. The star wrote: “I almost lost my finger from the anchor. Well, I lost half my finger. Thank goodness we found the piece of my finger. I just had surgery to fix it… it hurts so bad.”
According to TMZ, the star’s friends took her to a local hospital, where a plastic surgeon re-attached the digit.
The 30-year-old actress turned her minor accident into a humanitarian trip. She took to Instagram to share snaps of her stop at an Istanbul hospital, where she visited and brought gifts for a refugee family, who had fled from war-torn Aleppo, Syria.
She grew especially close to Heya, posting a sweet shot of her kissing the little one’s forehead. Lindsay said, “I can’t forget Heya whom I met during my visit to the Hussein family. She couldn’t care less about our gifts to her, whose mother has gone. She held me more and more tight when she sat on my lap. I sniffed her hair, took her hands and held her tight. I understood at that moment once again that we can do more for each other, that we should do more for each other.”
“And we can start by giving support to #Turkey, which did its part in this huge human tragedy called Syria by welcoming three million refugees. We should do more, starting today.”
Way to go, Lindsay!
