Furthermore, the 911 call pertaining to the accident has been released to the public.

“If I had been there on my own, that would have been a horrible way to die”, Renner said in an interview. “But I wasn’t alone. I was with my nephew, Sweet Alex, and then the rest of the calvary arrived." The actor had been trying to save his nephew when he was run over by the snowplow, causing the extensive injuries that almost took his life. Now, new video has emerged of the aftermath of the incident.

While it does not show much, there are point of the video where Renner can be seen on the ground surrounded by paramedics. Any graphic details and faces are blocked out. Then, once Renner has been loaded into an ambulance, the police officer surveys the scene. In this moment, a pool of blood can be seen where the actor was laying. It is a terrifying scene, and Renner is absolutely lucky to be alive.

Renner recently appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live, where he recounted the incident in gory detail. "It's like a giant metal-like cookie roller, right? And it just missed every vertebra, did not hit any organs, membrane did not swell," the actor said. "My eye did pop out, that's weird. But I got pretty lucky that none of the organs got messed up." However, Renner said that his only thought was about whether or not his nephew was traumatized. What are your thoughts on Jeremy Renner's miraculous recovery? Let us know in the comments.
