Jeremy Renner is grateful to the ICU staff who “started this journey” as he continues to recover from a serious snowplow accident. The Marvel actor, who celebrates his 52nd birthday on Saturday, shared a photo from the hospital with staff and family on his Instagram story.
“Thank you to the team at the prestigious medical intensive care unit for starting this journey,” he wrote. The actor who plays Hawkeye-wielding bow and arrow in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) has been hospitalized following an incident last weekend.
The actor was accidentally run over by his six-ton plow machine while helping his family rescue a car from heavy snowfall, according to local police. His publicist said in a statement to the PA News Agency that he was taken to hospital on Sunday after suffering “blunt chest trauma and orthopedic injuries” in the accident. The incident occurred near Mount His Rose His Highway, which connects Lake Tahoe and Southern Reno and straddles the Nevada-California state line. This post is a series of updates Renner has shared about his progress at the hospital. On Thursday, he announced that his mother and his sister gave him a “hot spring day.” A “bad” day in ICU turned into his day in a wonderful spa with his sister and mother. Thank you very much,” he wrote.
One of his family members was seen massaging his head with a clip.
Shortly after the incident, Renner posted a photo from his hospital bed, thanking his fans for their support, but said he was “too confused to type.”Many celebrities, including his Marvel co-stars, praised the actor’s bravery and wished him luck afterward.
