Jeremy Renner shares positive health update after HORROR snowplough accident
Jeremy Renner has shared a positive update on his recovery from his near-fatal snowplough accident in January.
On New Year's Day, the actor was struck by a snowplough while in an effort to save his nephew from harm, giving him critical injuries to his chest and legs. He was airlifted to a local hospital near Washoe Country, Nevada and thereafter his representatives confirmed that he was in a stable but critical condition.
Just a couple of days later, Renner posted an image of himself in hospital on Instagram while also thanking fans for their support. Two weeks after that, he was released home to continue his recovery and he later revealed that the accident broke 30 bones in his body.
Nine months on, he is back in the gym to rebuild himself, and he recently released a new Instagram video describing his current status.
"Positive daily routines have been a solid foundation in my recovery. Build your mind, the body will follow," he wrote.
"I make sure I get leg movements and stretches everyday... 'oil' up inside my metal/ joints with movement... push out scar tissue, strengthen muscle, tendons to have more Joint support.
"If you're struggling, just know your attitude will dictate every waking moment moving forward. Let go of the past, and move with positive intention and you will be provided. I promise."
Renner's list of injuries
In previous interview with Diane Sawyer for Disney+, the host listed the injuries that Renner suffered in the accident:
"Eight ribs broken in 14 places, right knee and right ankle broken, left leg tibia broken, left ankle broken, right clavicle broken, right shoulder broken, socket broken, the jaw and the mandible broken, a lung collapsed and pierced from the rib bone - your liver."
Renner, who is emotional at parts of the interview, insists he would do it all over again if it meant again saving the life of his nephew.
