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 is wrong with you people? This boy was badly injured. Can't you save your hateful comments for something else that might deserve them.

For all who said the son appears to be too pudgy to be surfing he does have a right to do it just like skinny people. BUT I do think his "pudginess" could have contributed to his accident. He appears to be not in good physical shape to handle the rigors of surfing.

PimpC, if you have kids, and 13yo boys, you would know, they put on weight to get themselves through puberty. He will thin out as he grows. Be nice. It's healthier for you. He's just a kid.

The blogger GETACLUE is correct. Papers are filed by the lawyers who will do there job and may not have been aware of Maria's situation with her son. As much as I think Arnold is a horrible man. This story leads you to believe it was done on purpose. Its just a regretable coincidence.

This story is a poor attempt by the media to cash in on this tragedy nothing more.

My thoughts are for Maria and her children, and for Arnold as he's this boy's dad and I'm sure is in pain because of his son's accident. That said, I hope every single one of these posts will be deleted prior to this child's release from the hospital so he will never have to read the mean-spirited and rude comments said about him and his weight. He'll thin out as he talls up, I'm sure, but if he doesn't, what business is it of yours!

Ugly divorces happen every day. Why is this one any different? Just because it is someone that everybody knows doesn't make it special.
The saddest thing I see in this tragedy is that everyone is more concerned about how the child looks instead of the fact that he is lying in the hospital in ICU.

My thoughts go out to the family. God be with them. Of course a family rallies together during a difficult situation. We should not criticize nor blame as we are not to judge. Their family business has no direct reflection on ours and therefore is not our concern.

I'm glad to hear he will be okay - What a scare for all his family! I don't get what all the chat is about his weight - everyone is different - he's a nice looking young boy in my eyes -
Frankly I don't see super skinny as very healthy either - it photographs well but seems we focus too much on appearance and not enough on character -

OMG: are you folks who are commenting on Arnold even from this planet? Article says, :Arnold has been a regular visitor as well
As for his infidility...that's between Arnold, Maria and his children. My God, what hypocrites we are. Clinton does the down and dirty IN THE WHITE HOUSE and no one seems to remember that. Arnold did what most men/women celebraties and people in power do: he thought only of himself and his own needs. Hell, Maria is a Kennedy and they got more nooky on the side than most rappers including the great JFK!! So stop getting on Arnold's case and save that anger and hostility to someone who really deserves it like Casey Anthony and all the other sick freaks out there who actually kill/murder/dismember and other horrible things. Nooky on the side doesn't even come close!

To all of you commenting negatively about his size....he might be a little "chunky" as you put it....but you're all incredibly stupid and insensitive. Here is a kid who is seriously hurt, his whole world has imploded around him...and you have to comment on his WEIGHT?

Why are all the comments so negative. I wish the family well in all their endeavors. What ever happened to compation for people and Why would you criticize a childs weight......If you cannot help someone without judgement or critisism then keep it to yourself. Reckless words pierce like a sword, but the tongue of the wise brings healing.

Really? You people need to comment on a child's weight? AND, there are NO illigitimate children...only illigitimate parents.
Let us all pray the child comes through 100%
