4th Of July Fireworks Accident Destroyed Footballer Jason Pierre Paul's Hand--Now He Shares A Warning

By Vanessa Nix Anthony

WARNING: this post contains extremely graphic images

In 2015, American footballer Jason Andrew Pierre-Paul suffered an injury to his hand during a fireworks accident at his home. As a result, he had to have his right index finger amputated and undergo major surgery. 

The injury affected his gameplay and he's lucky to even be able to play football today. Three years later (his post mistakenly says four), on July 3rd, he re-shared his story along with images of his injured hand as a warning against the danger of fireworks. 

As the saying goes, a picture is worth a thousand words. 

In this case those words are, "don't play with dangerous things like fireworks," in large capital letters repeated 250 times.   

The images with the message are of an extremely grisly nature and those with a weak stomach should think twice before proceeding.
