Lindsay Lohan had to undergo emergency operation on her ring finger Sunday after part of it was mangled in a boating accident off the Turkish seaboard.
The Mean Girls star, 30, had attempted to lift the heavy anchor of the vessel she was on when she got tangled up in the rope and careened into the water, TMZ reported.
The actress attempted to free herself of the anchor ropes when the heavy boating machinery seared into her ring finger, cutting it off.
LiLo’s boating buddies scrambled and found the finger of the Hollywood starlet, at which time she was taken to an emergency room, where an emergency surgical procedure to reattach it was performed.
She shared an image of the injury on her Snapchat account, telling her followers: ‘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.’

The Parent Trap star initially embarked into the Eurasian area to conduct a humanitarian mission in her support for refugees fleeing from Syria.
There, she paid visits to an Istanbul hospital as well as the home of the Hussiens, a family of Syrian refugees.
She took to Instagram to share with her followers the lessons she gleaned from the emotional encounter.
‘Meet the Hussein Family. The father, Mohammad, was injured severely in Aleppo and his wife left him and her three kids after they migrated to Turkey. The lovely girl is Heya (9) and her twin brother is Leys,’ Lohan wrote. ‘The Sultanbeyli Municipality is covering their rent and kitchen expenses but the conditions of the house are very bad.
‘The older brother was not in the house with us because although he is 17, he had to work in order to take better care of his family.’
The politically-charged pop culture princess earlier made clear where she stands, as she posted an image of the Turkish flag woth the caption: ‘#Start #helping the #refugees suffering in #Syria. As promised. #istanbul stop #massacreinaleppo.’
The actress was accompanied on her jaunt by Abdurrahim Boynukalin, the Turkish deputy minister of youth and sports, according to the Anadolu agency.
While there, the Liz & Dick star also announced her latest endorsement deal, with the B4L company and owner Umit Akbulut.
