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!."

Jeez if he was hurt that bad. I'd hate to see what kind of shape the ocean is in. As for MAria getting maria getting spousal support. 200 million in a settlement plus spousal support? Expect a visit from a hitman.

For all of you that are calling the kid pudgy I guess you would rather for him to be sitting at a computer making all kinds of stupid comments all day like you rather than getting out and surfing and getting exercise. Remember when you point a finger at someone else, you have three fingers pointing back at yourself.

Instead of talking trash tothe young man, you had better clean your house and your Gossip...You act like very young children. Some of you didn't even read the original E-mail so you could comment correctly. Some of you must really be bored. And I take ityou can't read either.

Why does the media have to bother celebrities to a fault? Maria's had enuff heartache over her over-rated husband already. Leave the kids alone to adjust to the situation. Didn't Diana's tragic death teach you anything? Arnold never could act & now he's out of shape for body bldg.
