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.

Can we all concentrate on the child in ICU and not worry about the ridiculous uncaring comments about him......the innocent one here? Where is the compassion?

We wouldn't be concerned with this boy being over weight except Ms. Obummer has pointed out to us all to avoid fat people. Fat children never bothered me until Obummer says they need to be fined for eating too much. I wonder if this family got a pass on insurance for their obese child.....Thanks Michelle Obummer for all the negative feed back on this innocent boy.

The divorce was filed by HER a while AGO. He is not denying alimony neither, he offered more than demanded by the courts because of how sorry he is. This Man has apologized and has taken full responsibilities for his actions. Stop with the name calling and stuff. If you had the same money and Fame you probably would do the same or worst.... he who is free if sin cast the first stone........

And his hair is brown....so the hell what if the boy is thin or not!!! With all this poor boy has going on in his life, the disintegration of his parent's marriage and now this serious injury, how dare "adults" on this blog comment on this boy's appearance. There's a special place in hell for you.

Why do people spend so much time and attention on sleezy people like the Kennedys and Swarzenneggers. There are far more interesting and import
ant isues that need attention these days.

Wow, after reading several of the posts it is obvious that several of you have no concept of court procedures and lack compassion towards a family dealing with personal issues.
Of course, I understand why....it's because you are a parasite in human form and require others to feed your worthless, pathetic, narcissistic life.

I am very sure both Maria and Arnold are both devastated about their son. Give them a break and show some compassion.
