In brief: 30 / 70 proposition

Death rate for spontaneous rupture is anywhere between 50% to 70% before the patient reaches the hospital.
Survivors however can have an excellent result.

In brief: Possible

The odds are difficult to predict once a cerebral aneurysm bleeds, but in general, not something you would want to take.
Avms that bleed usually are not life threatening, but cerebral aneurysm rupture oftentimes is. Although a sizable proportion of patients with ruptured aneurysms do survive, many do not, or have significant neurologic disability as a result.

In brief: Yes

There are patients who suffer a ruptured brain aneurysm who go on to have a complete recovery or who have only minimal residual deficits.
