Can someone survive a cut to the Thorat with a Can Lid?

I was watching this show last night and on there one of the Main Recurring Characters got stabbed in the throat with a Can Lid and started choking on his own blood and then fell to the Ground Unconscious.And I don't know if he died or if he was just injured or what? Does Anyone Know if someone can survive a Cut to the throat with a Can Lid? Oh, and also the Person who got cut was a Doctor so if he did survive he could treat his own wound.Does Anyone know?
