The right hand of one of the Yellow Vest protesters has been blown off by a police grenade, according to an eyewitness, during Saturday’s demonstrations in Paris.

RT video agency Ruptly’s footage from the scene shows clouds of smoke billowing around the street as protesters and police clash outside the grounds of the National Assembly.

Video captured in the moments surrounding the horrific hand injury show a marked escalation between police and protesters. One police grenade was filmed exploding as protesters approached the device.

Eyewitness Cyprien Royer told RT France that he and the injured man were near the National Assembly, where a group of people dressed in black were trying to smash their way in.

“That guy was just observing. The police arrived and started throwing grenades,” Royer explained. “One grenade flew right under the guy’s feet, and he tried to instinctively push it away with his hand, he hit it, and the grenade went off.”

“He clutched onto us. We led him to the wall where there were no people. He was screaming, screaming, he was in an [awful] state,” the witness added. “We called the ‘street medics,’ many came, they didn’t even understand at first he had his hand blown off.”

The Ruptly crew who filmed the horrific aftermath of the blast injury say they rushed over after hearing an explosion, and found the injured protester surrounded by paramedics.

Medics quickly surrounded the injured man to provide emergency treatment before he was rushed to hospital by firefighters.
