    “It was a boogie boarding accident” replied Shriver. He can’t move off the beach… broken ribs or something like that.”

    Shriver told the operator it was her son, Christopher, 13, who was hurt. And she described his fragile condition: “He’s awake and breathing. He can’t move. He’s having trouble breathing.”

    The accident happened during Carmageddon weekend at Escondido Beach in Malibu.

    Christopher has been in the hospital ever since… being treated for a collapsed lung and broken bones.

    He was visited by his father, Arnold Schwarzenegger Friday. His mother, Maria Shriver, has been by his side since the accident.

    On Friday Arnold and Maria put out a joint statement:

    “While it has been a very scary week, Christopher is surrounded by his family and friends. He is a brave boy and is expected to make a full recovery.”

    On Friday the couple’s oldest son, Patrick, tweeted “this kid is strongest kid I have ever seen… keep praying.”

    Christopher Schwarzenegger is expected to make a full recovery according to the family’s statement.
