In quotes shared by Fox News, Renner also noted that he remembers the entire event and that he did not lose consciousness at any point. He said:
“I was awake through every moment.”
Renner said that he managed to keep his mind focused on surviving, and will his body to do so. Fox News explained the incident by writing the following:
“Just 13 minutes prior to the accident, it was revealed Renner had recorded a video of himself experiencing the outdoors. The previous night, the Reno, Nevada, area where he resides received an estimated three feet of snow. His nephew’s car was stuck in the snow.
“Using his PistenBully, a 14,000-pound snowcat, Renner extricated the trapped vehicle from the driveway. After exiting the PistenBully and talking to a family member, the snowplow started to roll unexpectedly, striking him.”
Renner’s nephew has not yet forgotten the event, as he said, “I just perfectly see him in a pool of blood coming from his head, and I ran up to him. You know, I didn’t think he was alive.” It is a miracle that Renner has pulled through and already reached a point where his body can endure multiple press events in a week. Now, he is finally opening up about the self-doubt that he felt in the days following the accident:
“And then like, what’s my body look like. Am I just gonna be like a spine… and a brain, like a science experiment.”
Renner has managed to keep his spirits high and remain positive following the injuries. In a post on social media, he expressed his gratitude to his fans and family who have supported him at his lowest. Renner also posted the first video of himself walking post-accident on his Twitter account, which was a welcome sign to his many worried fans.
