(MEDIA GENERAL) – As we head into another holiday weekend prepared to celebrate our country’s independence, New York Giants star Jason Pierre-Paul is set to remind others of a nasty accident that could have killed him.
Pierre-Paul lost parts of three fingers and severely injured his right hand after a firecracker went off prematurely during a Fourth of July celebration last year. He now is using his celebrity to warn others about fireworks safety by starring in a public service announcement.
The PSA includes a re-enactment of Pierre-Paul’s accident and he shows off his damaged hand.
The PSA ends with a warning to leave fireworks to professionals and to keep them away from kids.
