A graphic video, now unavailable, was shared by Facebook group La France en colère (Angry France), which is covering the ongoing unrest in France. It shows a horrific injury sustained by a protester during violent Yellow Vests riots in Bordeaux on Saturday.
The man can be seen running toward the camera holding up his right elbow with the left hand, with a bleeding stamp left on his right wrist.

Another video later emerged of paramedics loading the man into an ambulance on a stretcher.
According to the city's deputy public prosecutor, Olivier Etienne, the man was trying to pick up a grenade to throw it back when it detonated and blew off his limb.
