| Last updated
A man who was stabbed by terrorists four times in the London attacks last weekend is recovering in hospital after dedicated doctors saved his life.
Brett Freeman from east London was stabbed repeatedly during the horrific tragedy in the capital on Saturday night, according to his friends.
One mate took a photo of Brett, lying in a hospital bed hooked up to machines, and uploaded it to twitter with a caption saying, 'He's a soldier'.
The friend, Darren Mole, also wrote: "Just woke up to find a friend of mine stabbed 4 times in the #LondonBridge terror attack."
He then went on to tell concerned pals on social media that he believed Brett had sustained a punctured lung and was in need of a 'couple of operations' but added that he was awake and talking.

Brett was among the dozens injured in the attack, which also took the lives of seven people.
London Ambulance Service released a statement in which a spokesperson said at least 48 people had been taken to six hospitals, however, a number of 'walking wounded' were also treated at the scene.
Amongst those injured were Daniel O'Neill, 23. His mum, Elizabeth O'Neill, told the BBC: "He had just stepped outside the bar for a second and a man ran up to him and said 'this is for my family, this is for Islam' and put a knife in him.
"I'm still in shock. I can't quite believe it's happened. These people say they are doing this in the name of God which is an absolute joke.
"They are callous, they are barbaric and they are absolute cowards. We will carry on as normal."
An Australian national, Candice Hedge, was also injured when the terrorists ran into the restaurant she was eating in and slashed her throat from behind, while she ate a meal with her partner.
Fortunately, the knife missed her major arteries. She was rushed into hospital and is said to be recovering well.
She posted on Facebook: "Hey everyone, just so you know I'm doing OK. Bit of pain but I will survive. Thanks for your thoughts and well wishes. Love to all."
