    You have a main artery in both legs more than likely the bullet hit that artery and she bled out

    There is a large blood vessel called the Femoral Artery in the upper leg. Perforate that artery and unless there is a field medic nearby, your odds of survival are not good.

    Not strange at all !! As the man said above, you have main arteries running from the heart. If one if those is punctured, perforated….or shot…..the leg will bleed profusely , unless it is stopped quickly !! It doesn’t take long with the heart continually pumping the blood

    It’s tragic that at a family gathering, people can’t put their guns away in a safe place. That’s what is crazy ! So sorry for the loss of this girls life.
