Jeremy Renner was airlifted after a snowplow rolled over his leg
Jeremy Renner was airlifted out of a Nevada town after his snowplow crushed his leg in a freak accident.
New footage, obtained by TMZ, shows a helicopter taking off from an open road surrounded by tons of snow and heading towards the hospital with the Marvel star inside and hanging on for life.
One of Renner’s neighbors told the outlet that the plowing machine, called Snow Cat, accidentally crushed one of the ‘Avengers’ star’s legs, causing him to lose a huge amount of blood.
Another neighbor who is a doctor managed to place a tourniquet on Renner’s leg until paramedics arrived to take him to hospital.
The Oscar-nominated actor’s rep said in a statement late Sunday that Renner, 51, was in “critical but stable condition” following the accident.
“His family is with him and he is receiving excellent care,” the rep added.
The ‘Hurt Locker’ star, who lives about 40 miles from Reno near Mt. Rose-Ski Tahoe, previously posted videos and photos of himself using his plow to help his family weather winter storms once they are finished.
“I have so much respect for Mother Earth and Mother Nature…I expect to lose the fight but I will always do my best #tahoelife life #snowthrower,” he captioned a video of himself. -even trying to make his way with his big machine.
