You should put pressure on the bleeding arm and raise it in the air. If you're alone and this happens, still put pressure on your arm and raise it, but try to find someone who knows first aid. Hopefully they'll have a bandage and some first aid gloves with them. Let them do the rest. However, if you are worried this will happen to someone else, I suggest you seek proper first aid training, as it's better to be taught how to put on a bandage than to be told off the internet. If the wound is treated correctly, you'll almost certainly live, although you'll have to go to hospital, but the technology is so advanced there's almost zero chance of dying.
