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.

What the f*ck is wrong with you people that you feel the need to talk horribly about a 13yr old. child. Is your life so miserable that you need to bully a kid? Sometimes I hate the anonymity that comes with the internet and wish everyone would know exactly who it is that's leaving these comments. So your neighbors, your peers, your friends, everyone would know what a low life degenerate, coward you are!!!!

Arnold was a regular visitor? Guess he doesn't have that much time as he is making the rounds among his numerous children, both in and out of wedlock.

What everyone thinks chunky kids can't surf or do anything? Get a grip, they can do things skinny kids can do, sometimes better. Leave these kids alone they can't help what how they look. Personally,I think he looks nice. My children are all a little chunky and they play sports and do a d*** good job at what they do.

I can't believe how incredibly cruel some people can be. It's obvious that those who are making jokes about this kid are very unhappy, pathetic, and poor excuses for human. So what he is a little chunky! He's a kid and wants to have fun just like every other kid. How would you like someone to point out something about you. Chances are there is a lot someone could say. Stop picking at children and look at yourself!

Hope their son gets well soon! .... I don't get why people are hating so much on Arnold??? People he cheated on his wife not you! No human is a perfect or a saint. He made a huge mistake in his life which he will deal with for the rest of his life. I do think Maria is getting a bit greedy now also wanting spousal support and for him to pay her attorneys fees :/ Come on Maria, Arnold is giving you majority of the money & whats with t bullsh*t people that she gave up her career to stay at home...even if she would have worked as a so called reporter she would NEVER have made the same amount of MILLIONS Arnold has made through their marriage. He made all the money or at least the big bulk of it!!!!

Ok--when is it open season on picking on kids? And we wonder WHY there are so many bullies in schools--nice role models you all are. If he was sitting around you woukld be calling the kids fat and lazy--he is out doing sports and getting exercise and you are saying he is too fat to surf?!?!? GROW UP you are morons. As far as Arnold goes, he is a pig and Maria should get every cent she can--BUT---the court papers probably were already in the pipeline prior to the kid's accident--and, anyway, he personally does not file them his lawyers do.Again, morons, learn something!

I'm sure you feel the need to say these things because you are so under par where your looks are concerned. You should be ashamed of yourselves but in order for that to happen you'd have to be a decent person which you've proved already that your not.
The same thing happened to my son when he was that age and I can't tell you how terrible it was to see him in so much pain and know there was nothing I could do to help. I was at his side for 16 days straight. I never left the hospital much less the floor he was on and didn't sleep for the first 7 days that he was in the intensive care unit. My heart goes out to the Entire Schwarzenegger Family and I pray their son will make a full recovery.

Not to be unkind about it, but I expected Arnold's son to be a little more buff.

These replies show that unkind behavior is exhibited on all social levels. I just want him to get well and sur****ain. I suspect a little weight at that age is normal and surfing is an exercise.

Lay off the kid's physical appearance! He's been seriously injured and the family is in emotional turmoil. Maybe you could be a little more compassionate and less judgmental.
