Jeremy Renner Airlifted To Hospital After Suffering Critical Injuries In Snowplow Accident
TMZ reports Renner was plowing the road about a quarter-mile from his mountain home so his family could leave, but somehow, the machine he was operating ran over his leg, resulting in heavy blood loss. One of his neighbors (who just so happened to be a doctor) was able to put a tourniquet on his leg until the helicopter came. Sources say his injuries are extensive and that other parts of his body experienced damage as well.
2023 kicked off with a scare for Oscar-nominated actor Jeremy Renner. According to multiple sources, the 51-year-old star was at his home in the Mount Rose Ski Tahoe resort near Reno following a big snowstorm on New Year’s Eve.
On Sunday, Jan. 1, Renner was apparently plowing snow when he suffered a major injury. He had to be airlifted to the nearest hospital.
His reps claim he’s in critical, but stable condition, which can be a bit misleading. You think, “stable condition? great!” but that just means they have his vitals within the normal range. He could have a traumatic brain injury and be in critical, but stable condition.
Obviously we hope that’s not the case here. His reps also said that his family is now with him and he’s receiving excellent care.
It’s not clear how big of a role the major winter storm played. Over 35,000 homes in the area lost power, but we’re not sure if Renner’s home was one of the ones impacted. We have to imagine he probably has a generator.
As you probably know, Renner was nominated for an Academy Award in 2010 for his performance in the film, ‘The Hurt Locker.’ The following year … he got another Oscar nom for his role in ‘The Town.’ He has also starred in countless other movies, including ‘The Avengers’ and ‘Captain America: Civil War.’
Here’s to hoping he can make a full recovery. Our thoughts and prayers go out to him.
