My male character in his mid twenties opens the door and is stabbed with a switchblade/flick knife/gravity knife. I need somewhere for him to be stabbed that isn't immediately fatal. I don't really want this character to die I just want him to bleed and pass out. He's will get found by another character who's going to think he's dead. Also if he is stabbed how many hours can he be left without dying before he receives medical attention.
ETA for further clarfication: I was thinking that perhaps he was found one hour after he was stabbed. The character that finds him thinks he's dead. Then an hour later another character finds him. So two hours in total before he gets medical attention.
I did google but I found a lot of confusing technical jargon. If someone wants to point me in the right direction that would be great. Thanks in advance.
