Ten months later from the snow blower accident in which he risked his lifeJeremy Renner he jumps and runs up and down the driveway. “Today marks 10 months of recovery,” the actor wrote in the caption of a video posted on Instagram. “First attempt at any of these activities (especially on steep slopes) and brought me tears of joy, hope, and gratitude for all your support along with my family and friends…I keep pushing for many reasons, but you are my fuel.”
THE ACCIDENT AND RECOVERY
On New Year’s Day, Renner’s six-ton snowblower ran over the actor in his Lake Tahoe driveway as he attempted to free his nephew’s vehicle from the snow. In an attempt to avoid a collision between the relative and the vehicle, which had started to slide on the ice, Renner was crushed by the tracks. Transported to hospital by air ambulance, the Hawkeye interpreter suffered broken more than thirty bones and underwent hospitalization in intensive care and several surgeries. Since then he has constantly updated fans via social media on the progress of his recovery, which resulted in his participation in the world premiere of the Disney + TV series last April Rennervations. Then Renner walked the red carpet supported by a walking stick.
THE COMMITMENT TO LIVING BACK
Earlier this month, Renner revealed he had been experimenting “every type” of therapy after the accident, including countless hours of physical recovery, injections, IVs and stem cells. “But my greatest therapy has been my mind and the will to be here and push to recover and be better. Be great…I feel like it’s my duty to do so. Not to waste my life that was spared, but to give it back to my family, my friends and all of you who gave me the strength to resist. I thank you all.”
