The 18-year-old son of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver has been taken to a hospital following a ski accident Saturday.
Patrick, an actor, model, and entrepreneur, was skiing in Sun Valley, Idaho, when the "little ski accident" occurred.
"Little ski accident today," posted the 18-year-old on Twitter Saturday. "Some bruises and stitches down back and butt. Thanks to Sun Valley doctors for everything."
Schwarzenegger also included pictures of his injuries on Twitter via Instagram with one captioned, "My ski accident 'living the hurt lifestyle' Lawford."
It is unclear how the skiing injuries occurred, but Schwarzenegger is recovering and even back on the slopes.
He posted on Twitter, "Appreciate all of the messages, love all you. I'm actually feeling good today, and I even went skiing again today. Thanks again!!"
Patrick has made headlines before his skiing accident, when his parents announced their divorce last year. Following his father's admission that he shared a son with another woman outside his marriage, Patrick changed his name on his Twitter account from "Patrick Schwarzenegger" to "Patrick Shriver."
The former couple shares sons Patrick and Christopher as well as daughters Catherine and Christina.
Just seven months ago, Patrick's younger brother Christopher, 14, was rushed to the hospital following a collapsed lung and several broken bones resulting from boogie boarding.
He was reported to have been boogie boarding in Malibu Beach, Calif., when the accident occurred in July as his mother was also present at the beach.
"Blessed to be able to take Christopher out of the hospital last night, what a feeling of relief to know that he's going to be fine," Shriver posted on her Twitter account after the ordeal.
Shriver added, "Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers. The whole family, especially Christopher, felt your love. We were very lucky."
