Arnold & Maria's

Son Hospitalized

-- Surfing Accident

7/22/2011 10:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver's 13-year-old son Christopher is hospitalized after a serious surfing accident last weekend  ... so serious he has been in ICU for days ...TMZ has learned.


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.

UPDATE #2: Arnold's other children Katherine and Patrick just tweeted thank yous for everyone's condolences. Katherine writes, "[Christopher is] a tough little guy and getting better! Please keep praying for him!."

I wish Christopher a full and speedy recovery. Hopefully, Maria and Arnold will realize that what's important deserves a second chance. Perhaps with some scars and tough memories, but still strong and able to flourish. This goes for their young son, and for their marriage, too.

Mark how dumb can you be, first of all the accident was not planned, the divorce has been filed by his wife, not him. He is a no good son of a bitch, but you make it sound like he planned his son accident. The kids are going through a rough time as it is to deal with such negative crap from everyone else. Thank you very much

Benice..."most rich people are ruthless" ??? What a stupid comment!~ My dad was a self-made millionaire in the 1960...'s and he gave away a forune to charities throughout his lifetime. He was the Bill Gates of his generation. You, my friend, are an idiot. And WHAT is with the other idiots talking about Arnold and Maria's son's size when he is so seriously injured? Oh Lordy, the world is filled with morons!

Really all you want to say is the child is overweight? WTF is wrong with you ppl? He was in an accident and hurt. What if it were to be your child and ppl were talking **** about his f-ing weight, does it really matter to you **** faces?

This is what happens with children of divorce. They do crazy things to deal with the hurt of losing a parent. His actions show how he is dealing with everything that has happened. My heart goes out to him and his mother.

i dont like to wish anything on any body, no matter what they did. because any prayer you do to wish some one ill or harm. you get the same one to your self. every family have issues. some parents are so selfish that they end up getting devorce because they still have the eco self center, ( me comes firsat then family ) , this is so bad. I hope any couple think many times before taking this step. that is what amking the american soeciety very week. good luck and God bless.

To Pimpc: A bit low class to criticize a child's appearance, especially as he's in ICU...but, judging from the rest of your posts of late, it seems to be your normal mode.

Anyone else out there want to go after a kid, that only speaks of your shortcomings, not the child's.

My best wishes go out to Maria and Christopher.

This is the first time I have ever made a comment. But how nasty some of you are. Talking about a 13 year old and his weight, and looks. He was out there enjoying and learning. Probably more than most of you will ever do. Then people want to know why kids are the way they are. I'm 51 years old and I'm about fed up with nasty people. Like the old saying goes, if you can't say something NICE, THEN SHUT UP !

Oh Please!! the papers were filed by their attorneys, standard procedure in a divorce. their son being in the hospital is coincidental and besides if the media hadn't reported the filing no one would know any different. Its funny how its always the guys fault and they are always to blame for the adultry and divorce. No body is ever going to convince me that she didn'n know about the other son he had with the housekeeper. Either she wasn't paying attention or she doesn't care.He told her after his term ended and she stayed for an additional 2 months? mmmm........ wonder why she didn't blow the whistle as soon as she heard or did she know all along. Its really none of our business now is it?
