Jeremy Renner appeared content and healthy at his Lake Tahoe home eight months after surviving a near-fatal snowplow accident.
On August 9, the actor, 52, took to Instagram Stories to share footage of himself and his daughter Ava, 10, enjoying Lake Tahoe before the season ended.
In the first candid shot, Jeremy was dressed in a mint green shirt, khaki pants, and a white cowboy hat as he stood in front of the breathtaking scenery.
Jeremy stood up on his own after removing the cane he required to walk after the accident. “A beautiful day Bestows incredible Blessings together,” the Marvel star captioned the shot.
Jeremy posted two more photos of Lake Tahoe’s stunning scenery, one of which showed his daughter wandering on the lake’s rocks.
In the photo, Jeremy covered Ava’s face with a red heart emoji. The ten-year-old was dressed in a blue summer dress. Jeremy captioned the photo of his daughter, “Last Summer Adventure.”
The Hawkeye actor has a daughter with his ex-wife Sonni Pacheco, whom he married in January 2014 and divorced in December of that year.
Sonni was spotted at Jeremy’s Lake Tahoe house in July, despite their ugly divorce.
Jeremy has made incredible progress in his recuperation since breaking more than 30 bones in a New Year’s Day accident that nearly killed him.
In Nevada, a 14,000-pound snowplow ran over Jeremy after he stepped in front of it to stop his nephew from being run over.
Jeremy was on the mend after undergoing three surgeries and beginning physical therapy, and he told ABC News anchor Diane Sawyer about the seriousness of the accident.
“I was awake through every moment. It’s exactly what you would imagine it would feel like,” Jeremy said to Diane.
“It felt like someone took the wind out of you. Too many things are going on in the body to feel pain, it’s everything.”
The Mayor Of Kingstown star also revealed that he considered end-of-life options after suffering such horrific injuries.
“Don’t let me live on tubes on a machine,” he remembered telling his family after the accident. “If my existence is going to be on drugs and painkillers, let me go now.”
The near-death experience had a tremendous impact on Jeremy. During an April visit on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, he said that he had lost twenty pounds and had quit smoking.
“Easiest way to quit smoking, I’m telling ya,” he said. “I couldn’t imagine not doing that and quitting smoking. I’d be a wreck of a human. But because I almost killed myself, I didn’t even think about smoking. It was easy peasy.”
