I didn't watch it and not gonna....but unless the leg was severed and it wasn't the femoral artery, pressure on the area stops the bleeding pretty quickly, along with the regular clotting process. Plus, further you get away from the heart, blood just doesn't naturally flow as quickly.

Chances are the femoral artery wasn't damaged, but again...I didn't watch it.
