Talk about some great news.

On New Year’s Day, Mayor of Kingstown star Jeremy Renner had to be airlifted to the hospital after he was ran over by his 14,000 pound snowplow while trying to dig out his nephew near his Lake Tahoe, Nevada home.

At the time of the accident, all we knew was that his leg had been ran over by the plow, and a neighbor who happened to be a doctor was trying to help stop the bleeding.

However, a source close to him later said that the injuries were much more serious than what was originally believed, saying:

“It’s much worse than anyone knows. Jeremy is aware of the fact that he almost died out there.”

It turns out, he also suffered from serious injuries to his chest, and lost a lot of blood from his leg and head.

But, Renner has posted a few positive updates to his Instagram throughout his recovery process, and appeared to be on the upswing from the near fatal accident.

With that being said, the 51-year-old has shared yet another positive update, as he shared a video to Twitter of him rehabbing his leg in a specialized stabilizing, anti-gravity treadmill, which helps to reduce the weight of the person walking on it.

He wrote in the caption:

“I now have to find OTHER things to occupy my time so my body can recover from my will.”

He explains in the video:

“It’s less weight, it’s like having a cane…”

He went on to explain that device allows him to get used to walking again, but with only 40% of his bodyweight.

Needless to say, this is an awesome sight to see, considering the recovery process was initially expected to take at least two years, and it appears he’s ahead of schedule.
