It’s been 3yrs since my accident and I can truly say I’m very blessed and fortunate to be where I am in life. Looking at these pictures seems unreal and crazy. How your life can change in the blink of an eye. One of the greatest American traditions in celebrating 4th of July is with fireworks. Unfortunately, tomorrow someone will be injured playing with fireworks. We are celebrating the birthday of our great nation. I’m glad to still be alive to show you the outcome of what happened to me. Please don’t feel sorry for me, trust me your boy fine even with missing fingers lol. Be safe out there otherwise, this can be you.
Three years ago, on the 4th Of July, then New York Giants star Jason Pierre-Paul’s life changed forever, when he severely damaged his hand while setting off fireworks to celebrate the holiday. Pierre-Paul came back from the injury, and proved that while he may no longer be a candidate for Defensive Player Of The Year, he can still be an effective player without portions of his hand. Jason Pierre-Paul was traded to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this offseason, and on the three year anniversary of his horrible accident, he shared extremely graphic photos of his injured hand on Instagram as a public service announcement not to play with fireworks. Not for the squeamish, but if you like having ten fingers, don’t play with fireworks kids.
