Andrew suffered a deep cut to his wrist from a large glass plane which could have led to death by bleeding out if an artery had been sliced through.
“I started yelling, ‘Medic! Medic! Medic!’,” Andrew, 27, told The Daily Telegraph.
“I actually thought I could lose my brother,” his twin brother Jono said.
“I was pretty panicked cos I thought a cut on the wrist is pretty serious. If it’s in the right place it could be the end if an ambulance doesn’t get there quick enough,” Jono said.
Despite the serious accident, Andrew said he “didn’t feel any pain” and that is was quick.
"Blood was gushing out. It looked like I could see fat. It opened up pretty wide and I thought, ‘I better start calling for an ambulance.’”
He was taken into surgery at Pindara Private Hospital on the Gold Coast where his girlfriend Tess rushed to be by his side.
Luckily when he woke up he could move his fingers. “The doctor said I was pretty lucky,” he explained.
Despite this, he was told it may take two years for feeling to return to his hand.
