Lawnmower accident-foot surgery leads to aspiration/near death

My cousin's child was mowing the yard, an accident led up to his foot being run over. The went to the hospital and he sat in the waiting room bleeding profusely for 3 hours before they brought him to his room.  
They performed surgery on his foot and was only able to save his big toe.  During the surgery he started aspriating blood out of his mouth and managed to fill up 16 buckets of blood.  He almost didn't make it.  I am wondering why blood was comming out of his mouth if it was his foot that was being operated on.  They are all stumped and he is still right now puking up blood.
