What Happened to Jeremy Renner?

It was reported that Renner suffered “blunt chest trauma and orthopedic injuries”, according to The Independent, after a Snowcat snow plow accidentally ran over one of the actor’s legs while he was clearing the remains of a snow storm in Nevada.

A neighbor and doctor managed to wrap a tourniquet around Renner’s leg to stop further blood loss, before he was airlifted to a Nevada hospital where he underwent two surgeries.

Renner’s family stated they have been “tremendously overwhelmed and appreciative of the outpouring of love and support” in an official statement and mentioned their appreciation towards “the Carano and Murdock families”.
