However, his family say he is now showing signs of improvement, with footage showing him opening his eyes for the first time.  

Speaking with 7News, Mr Brickey’s older sister Tina said a tourniquet applied by his co-worker saved his life.

‘If it wasn’t for him – we did get told – he wouldn’t be here now, so I would like to say thank you to him and everyone else that was on the scene.’

Mr Brickley has undergone three surgeries on his leg and it is now amputated above the knee.

He has also fought off sepsis but is now battling pneumonia.  

Doctors are still unclear on the severity of Mr Brickley’s brain damage. 

He suffered three breaks to the back of his skull and a large amount of bruising to the front of his brain.
