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!."

What is the matter with you people. Your cyberbullies, picking on a child. Weight makes no difference to the character of a person. I am sure your no better looking probably no job, no formal education to speak of (just high school grads waiting for your parents to pay the bills while you sit in their home,talking crap about a kid who had no hand in how wealthy his parents are) much less respect for others around you. Apparently, your parents have no class, no formal upbringing and definitely had no influence on you as person.

Leave Arnold alone he is tired of Maria there been together
To long she is after more money she can go to work and take care
Of herself. He will support his children and that is all revenge does
Not pay well.

WHY. SHOULD. HE. PAY. SPOUSAL. SUPPORT????? She has had sooo many doors open when he LEFT OFFICE, and so many more now that he has been proven AGAIN, to be a s***. It is not like he will be paying child support.... AND, while the boy is injured, he will be OK, and TMZ, NEITHER SIDE OF THE FAMILY IS POOR.

This is insane... It's no different that divorces outside Hollywood. Kids get hurt. At least they are with him together. The "curse of the Kennedy's" LOLOLOLOLOLOL. There is no such thing. Too much money and pushing the envelope, doing whatever feels good regardless of the risk, and poor choices. That is the curse of the Kennedy's. Now, I have to go listen to the Curse of the Country...Obama is getting ready to say why Talks broke up...his side, I'm sure very skewed

For the boy to get that banged up like that, he had to be on a good size wave, any of you d??k heads ever have the b?lls to try suffering, or is suffering to you when you find something on the web to cluck your old hen asses about.I've been busted up surfing many times and it's not fun to get repeatedly slammed to the hard sand.The article is about the kid not the parents you want to bit ch about something look at the white house.

TMZ, "condolences" is what you give someone's family when one of their beloved family members dies, not what you give someone when they fall off their surfboard and are going to make a complete recovery. You give a "get well soon" card for that.

Unbelievable and surrealistic that TMZ doesn't understand the difference.

Mycongratulationis to TMZ, America's version of News of the World. Thank for being first to publish the news. Tap any phones to get the story. No? Maybe a small payment to one of the EMTs or medical folks. Keep up the good work TMZ of maintaing the lowest standards in journalism.

Please change the headline. Chris was BOOGIE boarding, not surfing. Big difference.
