It’s almost been a year since Jason Pierre-Paul blew his hand up while using fireworks.

The defensive end says he lit up a firework and thought he could throw it away in time (he couldn’t). His disfiguring injury would become a point of scrutiny during the 2015 NFL off-season, but Pierre-Paul says, at the time, he was worried about what really matters.

“On the way to the hospital, all I could do is think about my son and if I was going to make it,” he says.

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, 11 people died in fireworks-related incidents in 2014, and over 10,000 more had to go to the hospital with injuries.

Who better to listen to about the dangers of fireworks than JPP?
