Marvel’s Avenger star, Jeremy Renner, is in critical but stable condition after being run over by a snowplow trying to help out his neighbors. The 911 call obtained by TMZ revealed Renner’s state following the accident. He was heard screaming in the background of the call and was said to have “extreme difficulty” breathing due to his upper torso getting crushed and his chest collapsing.
Reno, Nevada, where Renner resides, experienced a snowstorm on New Year’s Eve that left more than 17,500 homes without power. The Marvel superhero took matters into his own hand and took on the role of the neighborhood superhero, clearing snow out of people’s driveways from the massive storm.
Renner was operating a PistenBully, which he owns, more commonly known as a commercial vehicle. However, this heavy-duty machinery has become popular for private use, especially in snowy places such as the Colorado mountains.
Renner is now on a long road to recovery which has many fans wondering how this will affect his action-style acting career once he’s healed.
Is Your Neighbor A Marvel Superhero?
Washoe County’s local Sheriff, Darin Balaam, shared with US media, “Throughout the community, he has been very generous and he’s one of those individuals that most of the time you don’t know he’s doing it, but he has made a tremendous impact on this community.”
The Sheriff was questioned about Renner’s right to drive the Snowcat and if he a license was necessary to which he explained, “It was on a private road, so he can drive that Snowcat. In this instance, as Mr. Renner always does, those private roads. He was being a great neighbor and he was plowing those roads for his neighbors up there. Again they had three feet.”
Unfortunately, while attempting to rescue his car from the depths of the snow he was accidentally run over by the heavy-duty machinery he had been using. The Marvel actor suffered “blunt chest trauma and orthopedic injuries,” according to a statement shared by his family. Renner underwent surgery on January 2 and is currently in the intensive care unit (ICU) but is stable.
Love For Renner
Marlee Matlin, Deaf activist, and Coda star tweeted to Renner as well as Demar Hamlin who has also been in the ICU after going into cardiac arrest in the first quarter of the Bills vs. Bengals game this past Sunday. “Sending get-well wishes to Damar Hamlin @HamlinIsland and Jeremy Renner @JeremyRenner. I can only imagine how hard this day has been for their respective families,” Matlin tweeted.
DC boss James Gunn wrote to Twitter, “My heart is with Jeremy Renner.”
Renner’s Marvel co-stars Christ Pratt and Chris Hemsworth also responded to the news. Hemsworth wrote, “Speedy recovery buddy. Sending love your way!” While Pratt commented, “Continued prayers your way brutha.”
Renner’s sister, Kym, told CBS 13 reporter Steve Large.“We are so thrilled with his progress.” Adding in, “If anyone knows Jeremy, he is a fighter and doesn’t mess around. He is crushing all the progress goals. We couldn’t feel more positive about the road ahead.”
