Elizabeth Hurley says her nephew Miles lost more than four pints of blood after he was stabbed by a "group of males" in a shock attack in London earlier this week.
The star, 52, flew from the U.S. as model Miles Hurley, 21, was fighting for his life following the attack in a London street.
'The police and hospital are being fantastic. "Thank you for all your messages", she continued. It is an appalling time for him & our family. The motive is unclear.
Miles Hurley has worked as a model for designer brands including Dolce & Gabbana and Robert Carvalli.
A friend of the family said in the Sun newspaper: "Unfortunately, the knife hit vital organs". Another man, believed to be the same age, was also found suffering from stab wounds.More news: European Union executive to seek talks with USA over metals tariffs - Katainen
Liz Harley returned hurriedly from the United States in London when she learned that her nephew was found stabbed.
According to Elizabeth, 52, officers were called and a police officer on patrol close to the crime scene near Battersea Park administered first aid until paramedics arrived. "Fortunately it seems the knife missed his vital organs". The two gang violence victims were taken to a south London hospital where they were both treated for stab wounds.
Hurley has previously shared Miles's modelling photos, tweeting: "Here's my handsome nephew". "Road closures were also in place but have since been lifted".
No arrests have been made yet and the investigation is ongoing.
Miles is the son of Elizabeth's older sister Kate Curran, 54, and is close to his famous aunt and her son, Damian, 15.
