Marketing imagery for Jeremy Renner’s Paramount+ series Mayor of Kingstown has been altered following the actor’s horrific snowplow accident. Out of respect for Renner and his recovery, Yahoo Entertainment can confirm the main meshed graphic promoting the show’s second season. The move comes as the newly released 911 call from the scene of the incident makes it clear that the actor is lucky to be alive.
Originally, the Kingstown Mayor’s poster showed Renner’s face bloodied and battered. The actor’s appearance was cleaned up after the January 1 accident, however, as some of the markings were eerily similar. Renner shared a photo of his bruised face from his hospital bed earlier this month.
“It’s good for the network,” co-creator Hugh Dillon told . “Everyone is sensitive to Jeremy.”
Renner, 52, was accidentally run over by his PistenBully snowplow or groomer while clearing snow near his home in Reno, Nevada. The machine weighed more than 14,000 pounds, according to investigators. NBC News received partially redacted audio of a neighbor’s call for help.
“Someone is lying on the ground in front of my house. He was run over by a snow groomer. He was crushed,” said the stranger. In the background you can hear Renner moaning in pain. The neighbor told the operator there was “a lot of blood.”
“Are there any obvious injuries?” asked the 911 dispatcher.
“Oh my god, yes,” the man replied. “He says he has problems with his ribs…his right side…his right breast and upper torso. His ribs look like they’ve been bruised. He also has a head wound.”
After 10 minutes, the neighbor called back, begging the dispatcher to hurry first responders as Renner’s “breaths are getting shorter.” The man could also be heard comforting Renner: “You’ll be fine bro… we’ll get you out of here.”
The story goes on
The neighbor noted that Renner was conscious but was in “a lot of pain” and “breathing shallowly.”
“We covered him with blankets. His head is covered,” the operator’s husband told the operator, before telling Renner, “Don’t let them collect you.”
Due to snow conditions, it took 22 minutes for emergency services to arrive. The Marvel star was flown to the hospital in critical condition. He has undergone multiple surgeries after suffering blunt chest trauma and orthopedic injuries.
Renner shared a positive health update on Monday as he announced he was discharged from hospital. The actor tweeted that despite suffering from “brain fog,” he was able to watch the new episode of “The Mayor of Kingstown” at home with his family.
