A 12-year-old girl from Massachusetts used what she learned about creating a tourniquet from "The Hunger Games" to rescue her friend.
The Gloucester Times reports Mackenzie George was playing in a Gloucester marsh with her friends June 3 when she slipped and cut her calf open.
Her friend Megan Gething jumped in to action and tied a pair of shorts around Mackenzie's leg to slow blood loss. Megan says all that was going through her mind was helping "Kenzie."

The girl was transported to the hospital where she underwent surgery to rule out muscle or nerve damage.
Mackenzie's father says doctors expect a complete recovery in a month.
The Georges say they are thankful Megan was there, calling her the "star of the show."
