SECOND surgery and is in intensive care with ‘blunt chest trauma and orthepedic injuries’ – after he ran over his own leg with a snowcat at his Lake Tahoe ranch
Marvel actor Jeremy Renner is in intensive care and will undergo a second surgery as doctors tackle his ‘extensive injuries’ following an accident involving a snow plow.
The star suffered blunt chest trauma and orthopedic injuries after the snowcat he was using to plow his driveway ran him over.
Renner, 51, underwent his first surgery earlier on Monday today as part of an extensive recovery process but it has now been revealed that the superhero star will require further operations on what will be a long road to recovery.
A statement from his family stated how they were grateful to the ‘incredible doctors and nurses looking after him.
‘They are also tremendously overwhelmed and appreciative of the outpouring of love and support from his fans,’ the statement added.
The Hawkeye actor was airlifted to hospital on Sunday morning following the accident.
Renner, a two-time Oscar nominee, was alone and trying to clear a path out of his Lake Tahoe home with his PistenBully, a type of snow groomer made by the German manufacturer Kassbohrer.
The vehicle’s safety features failed and caused it to roll over Renner’s leg, around a quarter mile from the property TMZ reported.
