(Sorry for my bad english)
Hi! I'm writing a story where a man (35~40 yrs old) has been rescued after being shot four times (very important for the aims of the story).
The one who shot at him was a professional sniper and he used him as a hostage to force another people (the victim's brother) to reveal him an important secret. He didn't really want to kill him, not immediately at least. He just wanted to threat the other one (his brother) and retrive the information he was striving to get. After that, he was left there to bleed just some minutes before the ambulance people came.
How long can he survive without medical assistance? Which parts of his body (medical names,examples: Transpyloric plane, Midclavicular line ect ect) can be hit without having him dead on the spot?
Once at hospital, what would the doctors do in order to stabilize him and bring him to the surgery?
Thank you very much for your help!
