Back in January, famed actor Jeremy Renner nearly lost his life after brutally getting runover by a snowplow at his Lake Tahoe, Nevada home.

It all went down when he noticed a family member in line with the rogue snowplow, and he quickly acted and got them out of the way, but part of his body ultimately was run over by the 14,000 pound machine, causing significant injuries to his leg, chest, head and neck, while breaking over 30 bones and puncturing a lung and kidney.

The injuries were allegedly so gruesome, that his eye reportedly popped out and a part of his skull was even showing.

However, after significant time in the hospital, the Mayor of Kingstown actor was able to leave and continue to recover, and has seemed to be in great spirits ever since.

With that being said, Renner took to Instagram to discuss what he’s been doing to help heal mentally and physically from the traumatic accident.

He wrote:

“I have been exploring EVERY type of therapy since Jan 14th … everyday , countless hours of physical therapy, peptide injections, iv drips and pushes, stem cell and exosomes, red light / IR therapy, hyperbaric chamber 2.0 atmospheres, cold plunge, and the list goes on and on…. BUT

My greatest therapy has been my mind and the will to be here and push to recover and be better…. Be exceptional… I feel it’s my duty to do so. Not to squander my life being spared , but to give back to my family, friends, and all of you whom have empowered me to endure . I thank you all. #loveandtitanium”

Although Renner’s life will probably forever be changed from a mental and physical standpoint, it’s great to see the Wind River star persevering through it all, and being an inspiration to us as well.

Hopefully we’ll be able to see him on the big screen again in the very near future.
