NFL player shows mangled hand in a fireworks safety PSA


The Fourth of July will mark the one-year anniversary of the day New York Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul lost three fingers when a firework blew up in his hand.

This year he's trying to get the word out about fireworks safety. Pierre-Paul, not hiding the damage done to his right hand, is in a 45-second Cosumer Product Safety Commission public service announcement where he says kids shouldn't touch fireworks and only fireworks professionals should handle professional fireworks.

Watch it in the video above.

Note: there's a close-up view of his hand and it ain't pretty.
