A year ago, 20-year-old Lauren lost her left arm in a moped accident.
“I was going pretty fast on a moped and lost control of it, and I hit the median in the road,” she told Buzzfeed News.
“I flew off and hit a sign and it sliced my arm off. I stayed conscious the whole time.”
Lauren, from San Diego in California, has used humour to come to terms with her injury, after initially struggling with other people making jokes at her expense.
