21-year-old Miles Hurley was reportedly stabbed repeatedly as part of a gang attack in England's capital city.
The young man lost more than four pints of blood in the incident, which has seen him hospitalised.
Ms Hurley shared a picture of herself and her nephew, wishing him a speedy recovery and praised the emergency services handling the situation.
My 21 year old nephew @mileshurley1 was brutally attacked by four men in London on Thursday night. He was repeatedly stabbed and lost more than four pints of blood. A policeman was patrolling close by and administered first aid until the ambulance arrived. The deepest wound just missed severing his spine. By some miracle no vital organs were damaged. We are praying that these animals are caught before they maim, or even kill, someone else. These are sad days.
My 21 year old nephew was repeatedly stabbed in a brutal attack in London on Thursday night. The police & hospital are being fantastic. Thank you for all your messages. It is an appalling time for him & our family. The police will be appealing for witnesses.
