Hear Maria Shriver's 911 Call on Son's Accident

Former California First Lady Maria Shriver made the 911 call when her son, Christopher Schwarzenegger, was injured in a boogie boarding accident in Malibu.


Hear the call.

Shriver is heard explaining, "He can't move off the beach ... maybe like a broken ribs or something like that. It's my son ... he's awake and breathing; he just can't move. He's having trouble breathing."

The 13-year-old Christopher was taken to a nearby hospital, where he is now stable condition, recovering from multiple broken bones and a collapsed lung.

Shriver and soon-to-be ex husband Arnold Schwarzenegger released a statement Friday. "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."

"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. 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."
