After a fairly difficult past few months, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver have reunited to help their 13-year-old son who was injured in a boogie boarding accident on Sunday. He is currently being hospitalized in serious condition after suffering "a collapsed lung, broken bones and broken ribs."

In the statement, his parents say, "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."

His parents also extend their gratitude to the first responders and those providing their son's care.

"On behalf of our entire family, we want to sincerely thank the paramedics and lifeguards who responded so swiftly as well as the doctors, nurses, emergency room and hospital staff who have cared for our son," the statement continues.

"They have been extraordinary to him and to us. We thank everyone for their thoughts and prayers and ask for respect and privacy for Christopher and our family."
