After a serious accident, the “Avengers” star was in critical condition. Now Jeremy Renner reports with a video that lets his fans breathe a sigh of relief.
A few days after a serious accident while clearing snow, US actor Jeremy Renner shows his fans a humorous video from the intensive care unit. In the clip, which the “Avengers” star posted to his social media on Thursday (local time), he lies in a hospital bed with tubes and facial injuries and jokes about his condition.
A not so “great” day in the intensive care unit has become a “great spa day” thanks to his sister and mother, Renner writes about the video. The actor, who wears a plastic cap, gets a hair wash in the clip.

According to the police in the district of Washoe County in the US state of Nevada, Renner was run over by his own snow plow on New Year’s Day when he was trying to clear a stuck vehicle after heavy snowfall in the mountain region near Lake Tahoe. According to his spokesperson, he suffered “blunt trauma” to his chest and “orthopedic injuries.” His condition was described as critical but stable.
Renner, father of a nine-year-old daughter, played in the superhero series “Avengers” and in two “Mission: Impossible” films, among others. He was nominated for an Oscar in 2010 for his leading role in the war drama The Hurt Locker. He received a second nomination a year later for his supporting role in the action thriller The Town.
