Have you ever thought what happens when you are shot? And what does a bullet does to your body?

Bullets can penetrate deep in your flesh. And in addition to the hole the bullet creates in your body, it does much more harm once inside your body.

For starters, once the bullet enters the body, your body absorbs huge part of the dynamics the bullet caries. A 9mm bullet, shot from a regular gun travels with 1,400 km/hour. The dynamics the bullet caries has to travel somewhere, and the bullet transfers that dynamics into the body causing serious harm to your organs and tissue.

Whether a person survives afterwards depends vastly on the path the bullet moves. Even a shot in the leg and arm can kill a person. The reason is loss of blood.

What can you do if a person near you is shot? Well, there are several things you can do to improve that person’s chances of survival. First thing, call an ambulance. Then, try to stop the bleeding. And if there is an open wound in the chest area, you need to stop air infiltration.

Using a pig meat as a human double, Greg Foot shows what exactly happens when a bullet rips through the flesh and how you can stop it.
