Marvel Studios actor Jeremy Renner is set to undergo emergency surgery after a significant leg injury that put him in the hospital on New Year’s Day.
Renner made headlines on the first day of 2023, as it was reported the actor was in critical but stable condition after a weather-related incident. The Avengers actor was helping clear snow after a major snowstorm hit the Northern Nevada area on New Year’s Eve when a piece of plowing equipment rolled over his leg.
Since that initial report, details have been scarce as an investigation by local Nevada police looks into what happened with the vehicle.
However, fans finally have an update on the star’s status as he remains in the hospital.
Jeremy Renner is ‘Lucky to be Alive’
Fans have gotten another update on Hawkeye actor and longtime Marvel mainstay, Jeremy Renner.
According to ExtraTV, Renner will undergo urgent surgery on Monday after injuries sustained during a freak snow plow accident. The MCU star is now said to be conscious, stable, and speaking.
A source close to ExtraTV says it’s a “miracle [Renner] is alive” after a snow plowing machine known as a Snowcat flipped on the actor mid-morning Sunday. The online news outlet was “told it’s going to be a very long road to recovery.”
The 51-year-old was a quarter of a mile from his Lake Tahoe home when the massive piece of machinery flipped on the actor, rolling over his leg in the process and causing major injury.
TMZ reported that Renner had “extensive” injuries and was losing large amounts of blood before a neighbor, who happened to be a doctor, helped Renner by getting a tourniquet on his leg until paramedics airlifted the actor to hospital.
