"Hartz und cordial" star Elvis has an accident on New Year's Day when he disassembles a New Year's rocket.
The Barackler is badly marked by it.
But there is no pity.
Fireworks are not toys!
Many people in Germany have to learn this lesson every year on New Year's Eve after they are seriously injured and partially lose body parts through the careless use of rockets or firecrackers.
In very bad cases, there are even deaths at the turn of the year.
Elvis - star of the RTLZWEI series "Hartz and hearty - day by day Benz barracks" - is lucky in his accident.
MANNHEIM24 reports what exactly happened to him.
"Hartz und cordial" star Elvis seriously injured in a firecracker accident
As fans watched Elvis' new post on his Instagram on Monday (January 2), they were treated to a horrible sight.
The father of the family has injuries to his face, his left hand is swollen and covered with bruises.
A large patch covers part of his palm.
Underneath, according to the father of several families, he has a "huge hole".
The other hand was also injured and wrapped in bandages.
The fingers had burst "like a sausage in hot water".
Fighting back tears, Elvis tells of his accident that happened on the evening of January 1st.
The reason for the serious injuries: a New Year's Eve rocket.
The Barackler explains that he disassembled a broken rocket without a fuse in his basement.
He then went out the door with a ball containing the explosive mixture.
That's where the terrible incident happened.
Elvis examines New Year's rocket - suddenly there is an explosion
"I didn't even light the lighter properly, there was just this spark.
At that moment, this ball exploded immediately,” reports Elvis.
The splinters then fly into the face and also into the eyes of the "Hartz und Herzen" actor.
But that's not all. The lighter then exploded, causing the father's sweater to catch fire.
With "pain like hell" Elvis then dragged himself to the sink and let cold water run.
"I bled like a stabbed wild boar," explains the man from Mannheim.
His family then called the ambulance, which took Elvis to a hospital.
Although nothing is broken, the firecracker accident still has after-effects.
The barracker can only see blurry in his good eye – the other has been blind since an accident – and after a loud, continuous beeping in his ears, everything now sounds muffled, as if under water.
In addition, the multiple father has hardly any feeling in three fingers.
With all of these injuries, Elvis isn't sure when he'll be able to return to work - and he's only just gotten a new job.
No pity: Elvis is heavily criticized after the firecracker accident
However, Elvis does not get pity for his accident.
"It's my own fault, I have no sympathy", "You as an adult should have more in your head" or "How can you do such a shit, every child knows that fireworks are not toys", are just a few of the comments Instagram.
The Barackler also seems to have received comments on Facebook that go well below the belt.

Elvis himself is aware that he behaved stupidly.
"Please do not copy this nonsense under any circumstances," warns the family man.
After all, the Mannheimer also sees the positive in the firecracker accident.
Because if the year 2023 starts so badly, it can only get better.
