The accident came after Jeremy tried to help remove a stranded family member's car from the snow near his home in Tahoe.

Jeremy was struck by a snow plough and left "completely crushed" by the vehicle, according to a 911 call made after the incident.

A doctor - who lived nearby - fixed a tourniquet to his leg, which was bleeding heavily, until the actor was airlifted to hospital, where he was kept in an intensive care unit in a critical condition, before he underwent surgery for blunt chest trauma and orthopedic injuries.

His family released a statement thanking fans, saying they were "tremendously overwhelmed and appreciative of the outpouring of love and support."

The Washoe county sheriff, Darin Balaam, said earlier this week: "At this point in the investigation... we believe this is a tragic accident."

The 'Avengers' actor has been flooded with well-wishes from fellow Marvel co-stars including Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Chris Pratt and Paul Bettany as he recovers, with famous faces including Penelope Cruz, Orlando Bloom and Heidi Klum also sending him uplifting messages.
