British model Elizabeth Hurley has good news as her niece, Miles Hurley, is already recovering from multiple stab wounds despite being in great pain.
The 52-year-old actress posted a photo of her holding a dove on Instagram and captioned it with words of gratitude for Miles' supporters. Miles, 21, is slowly recovering from the stab wounds he sustained in London last week.
Hurley also commended her sister, Mile's mother, for her effort in making sure that her son and his friend receive proper medical attention. She also made a plea to make public places safer and expressed interest in having an advocacy inspired by the recent events.
"My sister is an amazing mother and is looking after him and his friend - who was also stabbed. We need to make our streets safer and I want to be part of the movement to achieve that. I hope you will join me," Hurley wrote on Instagram.
Miles also thanked the people who have been sending him well-wishes. He said that he is struggling to walk but is stable nonetheless. He even joked on his followers to continue scrolling down his Instagram account to see photos of his actual stab wounds.
On March 8, Miles was attacked at Nine Elms, South West London and suffered multiple stab wounds. London police reported that Miles had a minor collision with another car.
Both parties got into a heated argument, and Miles drove off and parked nearby. The other group followed them on course, got off the car, and brutally stabbed Miles and his friend before fleeing the area.
Two days after the incident, Hurley shared the details on Instagram together with the photo of her nephew.
"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," she revealed.
"We are praying that these animals are caught before they maim, or even kill, someone else. These are sad days," Elizabeth said.
Aunt Got His Back
Elizabeth and Miles have a close relationship together especially now that the latter has established success in his modeling career. Miles has worked for brands like Roberto Cavalli, Calvin Klein, Dolce & Gabbana, and Salvatore Ferragamo among many others.
In an interview in 2013, Miles confirmed his close relationship with his aunt. He added that The Royals actress has always been supportive in his endeavors.
"The best advice she has given me is just to enjoy myself, work hard and be nice to everybody," Miles said.
