In brief: You will die unless

Emergent action is taken to stop the bleeding and to remove the ruptured spleen.

In brief: Emergency!

The spleen is a very vascular organ; if the spleen ruptures and internal bleeding develops, this is an emergency that requires either surgery or a procedure to occlude the bleeding vessels asap.
