american actor Jeremy Renner posted a video on Twitter on Thursday of “a spa day” at the hospital as he recovered from a traumatic injury when he was struck by a heavy snowplow.
“A ‘not so good’ day in the Intensive Care Unit turned into an amazing spa day with my sister and mom. Many thanks”the actor pointed out in the comment included in the video publication.

Renner’s manager reported that the actor was in critical but stable condition after that accident, where he “suffered a blunt chest trauma and orthopedic injuries”.
According to Washoe County Sheriff Darin Balaam, an investigation was underway into Renner’s “serious injuries,” including checks for any signs of mechanical failure. At a news conference Tuesday, investigators said there was no indication that alcohol or drugs were involved in the incident, which was being treated as a “tragic accident”.
