Actor Jeremy Renner recently met with an unfortunate accident while he was helping plow snow. The snow plowing machine ran over one of his legs, causing some serious injuries which led to tremendous blood loss. A neighbor present at the moment of the accident happened to be a doctor and he managed to subdue the blood loss by putting a tourniquet on the actor’s injured leg.
It goes without saying that as soon as the news was made public, the well-wishers of Jeremy Renner flooded social media with prayers for his recovery. The well-wishers included the actor’s fans as well as some big-name celebrities. His co-star, Mark Ruffalo, also asked fans to send goodness towards Jeremy Renner’s way.

Both Mark Ruffalo and Jeremy Renner have fought evil side by side as superheroes Hulk and Hawkeye, respectively. Ruffalo joined in on the large number of people praying for Renner’s recovery as he took to Instagram to post a story for his co-star. He shared a post talking about Renner’s accident and wrote, “Prayers up for our brother @jeremyrenner on a full and speedy recovery.” Ruffalo also asked fans to send “Healing goodness his way” in the same story.
Renner and Ruffalo have been seen in a few Marvel Cinematic Universe movies together. Looking at the supportive message shared by Ruffalo, their relationship certainly goes beyond the movies.
Jeremy Renner in the Intensive Care Unit
After the horrifying accident, Renner was soon airlifted to a hospital where he was treated for his injuries. A representative of the Mayor of Kingstown actor stated that he had chest trauma and orthopedic injuries because of the accident and had undergone surgery on January 02.
“We can confirm that Jeremy has suffered blunt chest trauma and orthopedic injuries and has undergone surgery today, Jan. 2, 2023. He has returned from surgery and remains in the intensive care unit in critical but stable condition.”

They are also tremendously overwhelmed and appreciative of the outpouring of love and support from his fans.”
Renner was the only one involved in the accident and his family has been by his side making sure he receives excellent care.
