“Love and blessings to you all,” he concluded, together with a series of heart and praying hands emojis.
The “Avengers” actor was run over by his own snowplow after attempting to help a stranded member of the family near his Nevada home, causing him to lose a big amount of blood and landing him within the Intensive Care Unit. In accordance with a press release on the time, Renner suffered “blunt chest trauma and orthopedic injuries,” which required multiple surgeries.
The snowplow was reported to be a PistenBully or Sno-Cat, a typical but heavy piece of snow removal machinery weighing greater than 14,000 kilos. Authorities seized the equipment earlier this month to rule out any “mechanical failure.”
A terrifying 911 call captured the moments after the accident, as Renner could be heard within the background moaning in pain. The neighbor who phoned emergency operators said the Marvel star’s respiration was “shallow” and suggested a medical helicopter be dispatched to the scene.

While within the ICU, Renner shared a series of photos and videos that gave followers a peek into his condition. In a single, he shared a snap of his battered face, thanking fans for the “kind words,” but admitting he was “too tousled now to type.”
He also tweeted a clip of a member of the family massaging his head while he sported a hospital cap and oxygen mask.
An inside source claimed the actor faced “a protracted road to recovery” shortly before Renner was released from the hospital after spending his 52nd birthday there.
His injuries are “worse than anyone knows,” the source insisted, and it could take years for the actor to totally heal.
