Renner turned 52 in hospital. He was injured by a snowplow while clearing a driveway near his Nevada home, leaving him with “blunt chest trauma and orthopedic injuries“, had previously told CNN his publicist.
He underwent two surgeries and was treated in the intensive care unit.
Monday night, the ‘Mayor of Kingstown’ star replied to a Twitter post of the show, writing, “Apart from my recovering brain fog, I was very excited to watch episode 201 with my family at home.”
A 911 call log obtained by CNN says Renner was “completely crushed under a large snowcat (vehicle)” and had “extreme (difficulty) breathing.” He goes on to say that “the right side of his chest is collapsed – the upper torso is crushed”.
Renner’s snowcat, a motor-powered machine used to clear snow, started rolling while Renner was not in the driver’s seat, Washoe County Sheriff Darin Balaam previously said.
