In an Instagram post, Hurley said that his nephew had lost over four pints of blood in the attack.
“A police officer was patrolling nearby and administered first aid until the arrival of the ambulance,” she wrote. “The deepest wound just forgot to cut his spine.
“Miraculously, no vital organs were damaged. We pray that these animals are caught before they maim, or even kill someone else. These are days of sorrow.”
No arrest has yet been made and Wandsworth detectives continue to investigate.
