Christopher suffered multiple broken bones and a collapsed lung as a result of the accident in Malibu.  We're told Christopher's condition has now been upgraded and he will be OK .

We're told Maria has constantly been at Chris' side.  And Arnold has been a regular visitor as well.  We're told in spite of the divorce, the entire family has come together as a unit in dealing with Christopher's accident.

Maria has had an incredibly tough year ... and an extremely rough week.

UPDATE: Arnold just stopped by the hospital to check up on Christopher ... with his daughter Christina in tow. Maria arrived on her own soon after.

Arnold is a bold man, he knows what he's doing, at least he admits his mistakes. You people criticizing his family and you don't even know the truth, the media makes things seem so dramatic when really it's not, they twist dates, words and everything around to appeal to the media, and His fat ass son should be working out and living the legacy of when his father held up a good acting career.

I can't understand why all these comments are so cruel.
Every family, rich or poor has issues to deal with.
Wake up and look at your family.

Grow up people! This is a 13 year old boy who is still active and not a video drome. I think he's adorable and will probably be a football player.. My goodness, he's going thru enough with his family breaking up and you all want to pick on him.. shame on you and grow up!! He's very handsome and I can see the kennedy looks in him!

A lot of you seem to forget that Maria was the one who filed for divorce. Not only that, it was Arnold's ATTORNEY who filed the papers. When you have the kind of money Arnold does, it works like that.

seriously are people really this stupid that they have nothing better to do then talk about a child who is in the hospital with injuries? The divorce of these two people is their business, did you not read they are standing as a family through this crisis? as far as theri divorce issues Arnold only has acertain amount of time to respond to Maria's filings and vice versa, please learn the law before you let your ignorance show your true stupidity.

He was probably acting out more aggressively due to the family situation. That would be my guess. I hope Arnie feels like you know what. Idiot.

Sandra, what year did you win the Miss America Contest???? I just wanted to make sure that you are indeed PERFECT as you have no problem making judgmental comments about others! And besides, the story is not about Christopher's looks, it's about the fact that he has been seriously injured and is in the hospital! Hope one day you can develop empathy for others!!!!!

You guys are a bunch of moron's. The kid is in the hospital, injured and alls you can talk about is how fat he is and about Arnold. Just as many adult bullies as young kids. The apple doesn't fall far from the tree.
