A 12-year-old girl used what she learned about creating a tourniquet from “The Hunger Games” to rescue her friend.
According to The Gloucester Times, Mackenzie George was playing in a marsh with friends last weekend when she slipped and cut her calf open. Megan Gething jumped in to action and tied a pair of shorts around her friend’s leg to slow blood loss, using a tip she learned from the science fiction novels.
Megan says all that was going through her mind was helping “Kenzie.”
The injured girl was transported to a hospital, where doctors were able to rule out muscle or nerve damage following surgery.
Mackenzie’s father says doctors expect a complete recovery in a month.
