Arnold and Maria come together after son's accident

Monday July 25, 2011

Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver have banded together for the sake of their son following his surfing accident.

Christopher, 13, (pictured far right) was boogie boarding during a trip to the beach with his mother when the incident occured.

He suffered several broken ribs and a collapsed lung.

And despite their recent separation following the revelation of a lovechild, Arnold joined Maria in her bedside vigil and has not left since.

The couple even released a joint statement that read: “A few days ago our son Christopher suffered an accident at the beach.

“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.

“We thank everyone for their thoughts and prayers and ask for respect and privacy for Christopher and our family.”
