The 13-year-old son of former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and his ex-wife Maria Shriver was injured in a Malibu beach accident on Sunday‚ July 17 at about 12:20 p.m. Christopher Schwarzenegger was hospitalized after a boogie-boarding accident. The teen suffered a collapsed lung and broken ribs.
Shriver told a Los Angeles County Fire Department operator that her son couldn’t move off the beach and was having trouble breathing after being overtaken by a wave. The question arises about where his mother and lifeguards were during this intense beach injury. Though the teen is still being kept in ICU‚ he is expected to make a full recovery.
