Jeremy Renner revealed that he suffered "30 plus broken bones" as he shared a new health update after his devastating snowplow accident on New Year's Day.
The 52-year-old actor also expressed his gratitude for the outpouring of love and support that he has received since the accident in an Instagram post on Saturday.
"Morning workouts, resolutions all changed this particular new years …. Spawned from tragedy for my entire family, and quickly focused into uniting actionable love," "The Hurt Locker" star wrote in the caption of his post.
He continued, "I want to thank EVERYONE for their messages and thoughtfulness for my family and I …. Much love and appreciation to you all."
"These 30 plus broken bones will mend, grow stronger, just like the love and bond with family and friends deepens . Love and blessings to you all," Renner concluded, adding red heart and prayer hands emojis.
In the photo that Renner shared, he was seen lying in a bed with his hands clasped on his chest as he appeared to be undergoing physical therapy.
Renner's accident occurred on Jan. 1 when he was attempting to assist a family member after the vehicle that his relative was driving became stuck in the snow, per statements made by authorities. An estimated three feet of snow had fallen during a storm the night before in Reno, where Renner owns a home near Lake Tahoe.
Using his PistenBully, a 14,000-pound snowcat, Renner was able to successfully extricate the vehicle from his driveway. Afterward, he exited the Pistenbully and was speaking to the family member when the snowplow began to roll unexpectedly.
When the "Hawkeye" actor attempted to get back into the Pistenbully to stop it from moving, he was "run over" by the massive snow groomer.
According to a 911 call log obtained by Fox News Digital, Renner was "completely crushed" underneath the snowcat and had difficulty "breathing" after the accident. The call log also stated that the Marvel star was "bleeding heavily from his head and other unknown injuries." In addition, it was noted that the caller believed that Renner's "right side of his chest is collapsed" and "upper torso is crushed."
Several of Renner's neighbors quickly came to his aid, and he was airlifted to the hospital in Reno where he underwent surgery the following day, per his representative.
"We can confirm that Jeremy has suffered blunt chest trauma and orthopedic injuries and has undergone surgery today, Jan. 2, 2023," a statement from Renner's representative said, according to People. "He has returned from surgery and remains in the intensive care unit in critical but stable condition."... (Read more)
