Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Son In ICU Following Boogie Boarding Accident

As if this family hasn’t had a nightmare year already, People reports that Christopher Schwarzenegger, teen son of Maria Schriver and Arnold Schwarzenegger, has been hospitalized with serious injures following a boogie boarding accident last weekend. “Christopher has been in ICU since Sunday,” a source explains. “Maria has not left his side and is sleeping at hospital.” Christopher apparently suffered a collapsed lung during the incident, as well as broken ribs.

“Thank you everyone for your messages about my brother. This kid is strongest kid I ever seen. Keep praying,” his older brother Patrick Schwarzenegger replied to well-wishers on Twitter earlier today. Added his sister Katherine, “Thank you guys for ur concern and prayers for my baby brother! He’s a tough little guy and getting better! Please keep praying for him! Xo” Here’s hoping Christopher recovers soon, and can enjoy a relatively normal second half of 2011.
