In a case of life imitating art (insofar as one could call 2007 schlock-fest I Know Who Killed Me "art") Lindsay Lohan suffered a totally gruesome injury to her finger, although real-life Lindsay lost the digit to a boating accident rather than a serial killer.

The top joint of Lindsay's left ring finger was yanked off when she tried to anchor a boat. It was not cut off with anything sharp in a more conventional accident, as she clarified on Twitter.

It's pretty darn gnarly, and Lindsay shared her finger nightmare on Snapchat, explaining:

"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."

Being the absolute trooper that she is, Lindsay didn't let a bandaged finger stop her from trying to do some good in the world. Patched up and keen to help, Lindsay headed to Sultanbeyli, a district of Istanbul, to aid workers resettling Syrian refugees in Turkey.

Lindsay, clearly delighted to see happy families reunited with their loved ones, proudly posted a picture of her and a little Syrian girl on her Instagram:

Reunited with my little princess with her beautiful family in her new home.

Well done for using your celeb status to help those in need, Lindsay! Let's hope that Lindsay's mangled finger heals quickly and she can keep on rocking the awesome aid work.
