On Monday, Renner announced that he was home from the hospital following his harrowing snowplow accident earlier this month.
In response to a tweet about the season premiere of his Paramount TV series “Mayor of Kingstown,” Renner wrote on Twitter that he was “excited o watch episode 201 with my family at home.” However, he noted that he had been suffering from “brain fog.”
On Jan. 1, Renner was helping a relative who got stuck in a car on a snowy private road at his home near Reno, Nevada. Renner used his PistenBully snowplow to unbury the vehicle. At one point, the snowplow began to slide. Renner attempted to get back into the snowcat to stop it. However, the “Avengers” star ended up getting run over by the snowplow.
Audio of the desperate 911 call to save Renner’s life was released on Tuesday. A neighbor frantically called the Washoe County Sheriff’s Office to alert authorities that Renner needed immediate emergency assistance. During the 911 call, Renner can be heard moaning in agony on multiple occasions.
The neighbor tells the emergency dispatcher, “Someone’s been run over by a Snowcat! Hurry! He’s been crushed.”
The caller notes, “He is in rough shape. His ribs look like they might be crushed. He’s got a head wound as well.”
“There is a lot of blood over here, so you need to get someone over here immediately,” the caller pleads. “We just need someone here right away with lifesaving techniques.”
The neighbor urges the 911 operator to send help fast because Renner’s “breaths are getting shorter” and he’s starting to drift into sleep.
The 911 dispatcher wrote in a log, “[Jeremy] is moaning loudly in the background – serious bleeding. He is bleeding heavily from his head and other [unknown] injuries – [responding person] isn’t sure where all the blood is coming from.”
Within an hour of the 911 call, Renner was airlifted to a local hospital. The “Hurt Locker” actor needed surgery for “blunt chest trauma.” At the time of his hospitalization, Renner was in “critical but stable condition” in the intensive care unit.
Despite being released from the hospital this week, Renner is not out of the woods yet.
KCAL-TV reported, “Doctors say it could take two years for Renner to recover from his injuries.”
A Hollywood insider told Radar Online, “Word is the damage to Jeremy’s chest was so substantial it had to be reconstructed in surgery.”
