Jeremy Renner braves exercise bike as he recovers from snow plough accident

Jeremy Renner has said he is doing ‘whatever it takes’ to recover from the serious snowplough accident he endured earlier this year

The Marvel star, 52, was crushed by a six-tonne snowplough while trying to save his nephew near his home close to the Nevada-California state border in the US.

The actor has undergone two surgeries – one to place metal pins around his legs and another operation on his chest, and has since reportedly been ‘moving himself around’ in a wheelchair.

In the most recent update, Jeremy posted a video of him rebuilding the strength of his leg by using an exercise bike.

He wrote alongside the Instagram Story: ‘Whatever it takes’.

The actor also revealed he is working on his mental recovery too by reading The Book Of Awakening: Having The Life You Want By Being Present In The Life You Have, by Mark Nepo, after what was a harrowing experience.

The Avengers star has kept fans updated with his recovery process so far, previously revealing that he had broken more than 30 bones in the crush.

Jeremy’s friend Evangeline Lilly called his recovery so far a ‘straight up miracle’.

She told US outlet Access Hollywood: ‘I walked in his house and got chicken skin, because I was like, “Why are you mobile? Why are you mobile? What’s happening?”

‘I expected to sit at his bedside and hold his hand while he moaned and groaned in pain and wasn’t able to move. He was wheeling himself around, laughing with his friends. It’s a miracle, a straight-up miracle.

‘He’s made of something really tough, that guy. You’ve always been able to see that in him. He is recovering incredibly, and I’m so grateful.”

It comes after Renner recently teased his new Disney+ construction show Rennervations, more of which will be revealed ‘as soon as [he’s] back on [his] feet’.

Jeremy was lucky to have survived the ordeal, as a source told RadarOnline last month: ‘It’s much worse than anyone knows. Jeremy is very aware of the fact that he almost died out there.

‘The right side of Jeremy’s chest was crushed, and his upper torso had collapsed.

‘He also had a bad head wound that was bleeding and a leg injury.’

Since the accident, shocking audio has emerged of the frantic 911 call made by Jeremy’s neighbour when they found him crushed.

In it, the Hurt Locker actor can be heard moaning out in pain.
