Jeremy Renner Posts First Video From Hospital Since Snow Plow Accident Gage Skidmore/ Flickr

Actor Jeremy Renner celebrated his 52nd birthday in the intensive care unit of a hospital while he is continuing to recover from injuries sustained in a snowplow accident.

Jeremy Renner, the Marvel star, was clearing snow from a private driveway near his Nevada home on New Year’s Day so that his family members could depart his residence after the celebration. However, while he was clearing the snow, Renner’s snowcat, an engine-powered machine used to clear snow, started to roll away while Renner was not in the driver’s seat. He was injured as he tried to get back into the machine, CNN reported.

Following the accident, Renner underwent two surgeries for blunt chest trauma and orthopedic injuries. Since the highway was closed due to severe winter weather, a helicopter was used to transport Renner to the hospital.

The Avengers actor spent his 52nd birthday in the hospital with his medical ICU team and family on Saturday, Jan. 7.

“Thank you renowned medical ICU team for beginning this journey,” Renner wrote with an image shared to his Instagram story. The image that he shared on Instagram shows the actor in a hospital bed, surrounded by medical professionals. The image is the third update Renner shared since being hospitalized.

Renner also shared a brief video of his supporters dancing to 50 Cent’s “In Da Club” to wish him a happy birthday, and he thanked them for the “birthday love.”

Several other actors also sent birthday wishes to Renner.

“Happy birthday to one of the toughest guys I know,” Captain America actor Chris Evans wrote on his Instagram story with a picture of Renner. “Sending so much love your way.”

Meanwhile, Renner's Hawkeye co-star Hailee Steinfeld shared a birthday message in the form of a video on her Instagram Story. The video showed the two Marvel stars cracking each other up while trying to film a promo for the Disney+ series, People reported.

At the time of Renner's accident, parts of western Nevada were covered with intense snow. The Reno area received around 6-12 inches of snow at elevations below 5,000 feet between New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day, and up to 18 inches at higher elevations.
