I have heard that .22 can deflect off dense materials travel through your body in different directions once it's entered. I'm not an expert by any means but it might explain how a bullet that entered the abdomen could traverse down to damage the femoral.Yep exactly! The femoral is in your legs. Gotta love the local media's expert fact checkers!
Reminds me of that scene in the movie Black Hawk Down where they are trying to clamp off a wounded guys femoral artery and it kept retreating up into his body and they couldn't get it clamped. Sad.I assumed he was shot in the lower abdomen, and it possibly deflected in his hip area. Regardless, that's absolutely horrible to be shot in an artery.
