A FORMER model has had to have both of her legs amputated because of an infection caused by a tampon. According to New Zealand Herald, Lauren Wasser (29) from California, America had no idea what fate had in store for her when she started feeling unwell at a party in 2012. Back at her apartment, Lauren fell unconscious. The next morning, cops discovered her face down on the floor. She was feverish, her kidneys were failing and she’d had a heart attack.
