“Hunger Games” Helps Save A Life
Megan Gething is the type of person you want around in an emergency, and she’s only 12.

Megan knew she had to create a tourniquet thanks to “The Hunger Games.”
“I knew it from a book I read,” Megan explains. “I figured it was a well-known method of stopping bleeding.” She used a pair of her friend’s shorts to apply pressure while another of the girls, Zoe Tallgrass ran for help.  Eventually, Zoe’s father and brother came and carried Mackenzie back to their house and called for help.
