Marvel star, Jeremy Renner undergoes second successful surgery, remains in critical but stable condition in intensive care
Marvel’s star, Jeremy Renner, has had a second successful operation to address the injuries he suffered when he was hit by the snow plow at his Lake Tahoe ranch.
A representative for the 51-year-old actor told People on Monday night that Renner ‘has returned from surgery and remains in the Intensive Care Unit in critical but stable condition.’
He confirmed that the Oscar nominee suffered blunt chest trauma and other orthopedic injuries in Sunday’s accident while trying to clear a path from his Lake Tahoe home using his PistenBully (a snowcat manufactured by Kassbohrer).
His family now wishes to ‘express their gratitude to the incredible doctors and nurses looking after him, Truckee Meadows Fire and Rescue, Washoe County Sheriff, Reno City Mayor Hillary Schieve, and the Corano and Murdock families.
‘They are all tremendously overwhelmed and appreciative of the outpouring of love and support from his fans.’
The Washoe County Sheriff’s Office explained what happened in a statement: ‘At approximately 9:00 am on January 1, 2023, the Washoe County Sheriff’s Office responded to a traumatic injury in the area of Mt. Rose Highway in Reno, Nevada.
‘Upon arrival, Deputies coordinated with Truckee Meadows Fire Protection District and REMSA Health to arrange for medical transport of Mr. Jeremy Renner via care flight to a local area hospital.
‘Mr. Renner was the only involved party in the incident.
‘The Washoe County Sheriff’s Office Major Accident Investigation Team is currently looking into the circumstances of the incident.’
A neighbor who happened to be a doctor was able to put a tourniquet on his injured leg to stem the bleeding, but Renner suffered significant blood loss by the time he was airlifted from the snowy scene at 9.50 am.
Renner is perhaps best known for his role as Hawkeye, a skilled archer in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
