Hollywood actor Jeremy Renner (52), who suffered a serious accident, is fighting his way back to life. On his Instagram account, the Marvel star once again let his fans participate in his rehabilitation measures. In one of his stories, Renner showed how the muscles in his leg are stimulated with electrical impulses. He underscored the short video with the Beatles hit "Lady Madonna".
The 52-year-old was seriously injured in an accident earlier in the year. The sheriff's office later said Renner was run over by his own snow cat on New Year's Day on his mountainside property a few miles from Lake Tahoe. He is said to have previously tried to free a family member's car that got stuck after a heavy snowstorm.
Noticing that the seven-ton vehicle had started to roll after he had briefly got out, Renner is said to have tried to jump back in. According to the sheriff, that's when the actor was pulled over and suffered blunt chest trauma and orthopedic injuries.
Due to the previous snowstorm, the emergency services had trouble getting to the scene of the accident. The star could only be flown to the hospital in a helicopter and operated on there about an hour after the emergency call. On January 4, Renner posted a snapshot from the hospital, officially giving the all-clear that he was over the hill.
Renner later announced via Instagram that he had broken more than 30 bones in the accident. But everything would "grow back together and be stronger than before. Just as the love and connection with my family and friends deepens". He also published a picture of him lying in his hospital bed at his home in the US state of Nevada with a physical therapist taking care of him.
