Boston bombing wasnt fake. Those are victims not actors.

Arterial blood loss is significantly different when a limb is blown off or crushed VS clean cut. The traumatized muscle, among other things, expands and applies pressure to the severed artery. It is the same reason a clean cut human umbilical cord is treated VS how animals avoid this complication by chewing through their umbilical cords. It's also why we have so many limbless veterans. Most people who lose a limb on the battlefield do not receive full medical attention until long after the victims of the Boston bombing.
MikeFWT210, if you can, ask an Army surgeon about it. They will be able to explain the concept wayyy better than me.
