3 years ago, Jason Pierre-Paul blew up his hand in a horrific fireworks accident celebrating the 4th of July that left him with about 3 and a half fingers on his right hand. Yesterday, JPP took to Instagram on the 3rd anniversary to spread some firework awareness to the handful of morons out there who definitely will drunkenly blow themselves up
I’ll let you read his message before we get to the mangled hand.
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.
Now we can get to the photos. As a warning, let me say that if you’re super hungover this morning because you drank 100 beers and ate 57 hotdogs yesterday and are worried about keeping it down, it’s probably best you just exit out of this blog immediately. Save looking at these photos for another day when you’re stomach isn’t living on the edge like it is this morning.
These pictures are from shortly after the incident. Not immediately after with blood and guts everywhere, but it looks like it was pretty soon after he returned from the hospital. That doesn’t mean these are any less gruesome than you probably imagined.
I’ll give you one last chance to turn back.
