Bodycam shows medics save Jeremy Renner after snowplow crash

Newly released video footage shows the tense moments following actor Jeremy Renner’s horrifying snowplow accident in January that left the actor with 30 broken bones.

Harrowing video from the bloody scene captured a team of medics’ desperate bid to save the Marvel star after his 14,330-pound Snowcat vehicle ran him over on New Year’s Day.

Renner was left in critical condition after “experiencing a weather-related accident while plowing snow” — causing him to suffer “extensive” injuries in Lake Tahoe.

The “Avengers” actor was using his snowplow to clear a path out of his five-bedroom home after the area had been slammed by a massive snowstorm.

The storm had left over 35,000 people without power in the area.

The police bodycam footage, which shows the situation just moments after the horror accident, also shows that a team of five medics battled to save the actor, who suffered blunt chest trauma and orthopedic injuries.

“It was horrible. I thought he was going to die, man. I’m holding him and his color is just going,” said one person at the scene.

Renner’s accident occurred moments after he heroically risked his life to save his nephew, Alexander Fries, from the path of the snowplow.

In police bodycam footage, Fries explained what happened to his uncle.

“He went up and turned around, got out to tell me something and then that’s when it started coming at me, like, full force,” he told cops.

“That’s when he tried to jump back in there. Right where his blood is at, that’s right where it all happened.”

“He tried to jump on it, into the thing, and it took him under,” Fries added.

A 911 call from the accident was recently released, which heard Renner’s neighbor telling emergency services that the actor had been “crushed” by the snowplow.

On the phone call, the frantic man asked for the emergency crew’s arrival time as he said Renner’s “shallow” breaths were “getting shorter” and that he had started to “drift off” into sleep.

“Stay awake,” he told Renner, who was said to be wrapped in blankets and “conscious” but in “a lot of pain.”

Renner ended up losing a significant amount of blood, and underwent surgeries and received round-the-clock care from medics after he was airlifted to Renown Regional Medical Center in Reno, Nevada.

A photo of Renner in his snowplow he posted on Twitter in December 2019 with the caption “Pave your own paths anyway you know how.. one foot in front on the other.”

Renner nearly died following being crushed by the snowplow on Jan. 1, 2023.

Renner lost a significant amount of blood during the accident and emergency personnel said he was drifting out of consciousness while they attempted to save his life on Jan. 1, 2023.

His neighbor who happened to be a doctor initially applied a tourniquet to his leg to stop the bleeding.

Renner came home from the hospital in January and has been recovering since.

The actor did his first on-screen interview since the incident last month, speaking to ABC News anchor Diane Sawyer.

He told Sawyer, 77, that he refuses to be “haunted” by the memory of the harrowing accident that nearly took his life.

“I shifted the narrative of it being victimized or making a mistake or anything else,” the two-time Oscar nominee said in the hourlong special. “I refuse to be f–king haunted by that memory that way.”

He also revealed in the interview that he was writing his “last words” to his family while in the hospital.

“I’m writing down notes on my phone. Last words to my family,” he told Sawyer while holding back tears.
