Actor Jeremy Renner in 'critical but stable' condition following 'weather related accident'
The 51-year-old was airlifted to hospital on New Year's Day
Marvel actor Jeremy Renner is reportedly in a “critical but stable” condition in hospital following a “weather related accident”.
A spokesperson for the actor told US entertainment outlet Deadline the 51-year-old was airlifted to hospital on Sunday following the incident, which occurred while he was “plowing snow”.
The spokesperson added Renner was with his family and “receiving excellent care”.
The scope of the storm has been nearly unprecedented, stretching from the Great Lakes near Canada down to the Rio Grande along the border with Mexico.
Renner previously tweeted about the snow at his US ranch in December, writing: “Lake Tahoe snowfall is no joke.”
The storm unleashed its full fury on Buffalo, with hurricane-force winds and snow causing whiteout conditions, in what has been branded one of the worst weather-related disasters to hit the western part of New York state.
Renner, a two-time Oscar nominee, is well-known for playing Hawkeye in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
He has also featured in films including The Hurt Locker, American Hustle, and Mission Impossible – Ghost Protocol alongside Tom Cruise.
Renner is currently starring in the Paramount+ series The Mayor of Kingstown.
