Braison Chance and his father, Billy Ray Cyrus, tweeted about the incident.

Miley Cyrus' younger brother, Braison Chance, was hospitalized Saturday in Burbank following an incident that left him bleeding badly.

Their father, Billy Ray Cyrus, tweeted out a graphic photo of Braison showing the teenager with what appears to be a bloody nose and holding what looks like a plastic bucket filled with blood. He also had wires from various pieces of medical equipment attached to his chest, finger and other body parts. (See the graphic photo here.)
