Jason Pierre-Paul speaks with young fan who had fingers amputated
Jason Pierre-Paul’s Independence Day accident made the Giants defender the subject of a considerable amount of criticism, but Pierre-Paul is finding a way to make the best of the situation, and that includes reaching out to a child who recently lost some fingers to an accident with a bicycle.
NJ.com reports that Seamus Bohannon and Pierre-Paul recently spoke via FaceTime after the 11-year-old’s sister reached out to the New York star on Twitter about her brother’s partial amputation of two fingers.
Pierre-Paul’s conversation with Seamus included tips on how to deal with people staring at the injury or attempt to make jokes about his hand, as well as encouragement that the young fan, who primarily roots for the Lions, can still accomplish anything he wants.
The six-year veteran played his first game since the incident in the Giants Week 9 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
