The actor Jeremy Renner has revealed he broke more than 30 bones during his serious snowplough accident.
Renner, known for playing the bow and arrow-wielding Hawkeye in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, was airlifted to hospital with serious injuries on 1 January after he was accidentally run over by his six-tonne ploughing machine while trying to help a family member.
On Saturday, Renner, 52, thanked all those who have sent him messages of support as he shared a photo on Instagram of him receiving treatment while lying in a hospital bed.
He wrote: “Morning workouts, resolutions all changed this particular new years …
“Spawned from tragedy for my entire family, and quickly focused into uniting actionable love.
“I want to thank EVERYONE for their messages and thoughtfulness for my family and I. Much love and appreciation to you all.
“These 30 plus broken bones will mend, grow stronger, just like the love and bond with family and friends deepens. Love and blessings to you all.”
