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!."

These folks have no common sense - because they're not common - they're self-centered egotistical people with no idea how the common people live and breathe - the kid was injured because he was wearing an air conditioned wet-suit (duh) any skinny or fatty can hop up on a surfboard and break their neck and no one gives a sheet - what makes these people so special - booty hooty hoo - and btw - the reason these people are always being photograped in a big hurry is not to avoid cameras but to make it as fast as they can from their air conditioned vehicles to their air conditioned appointments - they's all collapse of heat stroke at a minimum wage job

Is Arnie still wearing his wedding ring? Sure looks like it in the photo above. What a PIG!!!!

@CHAZ, Not only did they put him into office, they did it TWICE!!! As a Califorian, it disgusted me!!! What he's done to this state should be illegal!!!! And before anyone tries to defend him with "it's the economy" bull ****. Don't even go there. Prior to the bad economy, that moron ruined A LOT of peoples lives.

Surfing is a dangerous activity/sport but so is any sport really. Because it is, that doesn't mean their son shouldn't do it. Do we even know if he's never been taught the basics or are people just assuming?? You know what they say about assuming, right??? Just saying....

My thoughts and prayers go out to their son and the family. Get well soon kiddo!!

Forget the adults i hope the son has a full recovery. Nobody knows what kind of mother or wife maria is. when a man doesnt love u a pay off is all thats left because she doesnt have his heart and Flo you're stupid this isnt about u. i dont believe you're that angry and if u r than get a life.

He will pay for all he has done. ARROGANT,SELF CENTER,LUSTFUL,WORLDLY PERSON,if spouse support is the law out there, then of course it will happen by law, and of course child support to.

I am really tired of people pitty for maria, she'll live. There's a woman who just lost her little boy to a child killer and all we can talk about is poor maria. If she wasnt a kennedy he wouldnt have married her. She looks like trailer trash to me. With all her money she should do something about her appearance. Pay her off and be done with all the self pitty and you other women that is sooo angry at arnold you are not fooling me you're just jealous because u wasnt the housekeeper that he was seeing. Women are full of themselves. Especially the women that dont know how to keep a man's attention and dont know how to appeal to a man. Women believe the women are the relationship experts but in reality women are very good at driving a man to another woman and when he strays half!!!! well F/U and get a clue on how to keep your man's attention.

lets see, their net worth is 400 million. There was no prenup so its a 50/50 split. Does she really need spousal support. I would think one could live pretty well on 200 million!!!!!

I can't believe that so many of you are going on and on and on about spousal support. Both of them have more money than they could spend in ten life times, I guess you forget who her parents were before she ever thought about Arnold.

This shows you that Maria should not have the children. Was she at the beach with her son when this happened? I bet the answer is no. She has done nothing but bash Arnold. People keep saying he should give her spouse support, but I would think she should give him spouse support. I bet with her family connections she makes more than he does.

Please shut down this comment board. If not, you're just as responsible for hurting this child as all the sickos that are posting cruel and hateful comments.

I have been through one divorce and it was the most pain full thing I have ever gone through. I'm now 69 and happy re maried for 35 years so far. i'm sorry for Maria it all ways boils down to money the men want out competly. Gradually the men quit seeing the kids they just start thair new life and forget all about the first family. I feel Arnols is a real jerk sorry he was ever voted it. Leave the children alone that young boy is going through alot of things now. This will not be a short recovery probably lots of therepy. The best thing is kids heal fast. But i'm sure he is still not out of the woods alot can happen in the hospital ,infecetione, ets. So everyone keep praying for him and the whole family.
