With Independence Day currently in full swing, NFL player Jason Pierre-Paul is hoping to remind others about the importance of fireworks safety by revealing pictures of the gruesome he experienced three years ago.

On July 4, 2015, Pierre-Paul — who was then a defensive end on the New York Giants — almost blew off his right hand while handling fireworks.
