Patrick Schwarzenegger is proving himself to be quite his father's son. The 18-year-old son of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver was rushed to the hospital on Saturday after having an accident while skiing in Sun Valley, Idaho, but he's already back on his skis and hitting the slopes again.

"Little skiing accident today," Schwarzenegger tweeted after his fall left him with "some bruises and stitches" down his lower back. Even throughout the ordeal, the polite teen remembered to shout out to his caretakers. "Thanks to sun valley doctors for everything," he added.

You can't keep a good man down, apparently. Today Schwarzenegger was back on the slopes and better than ever, reports People. "Appreciate all the messages, love all you," he tweeted. "I'm actually feeling really good today, and I even went skiing again today. Thanks again!"

Terminator-like strength aside, the Schwarzenegger family seems to be prone to sporting accidents. Last year Patrick's little brother Christopher, 14, spent over a week in the hospital for injuries incurred while boogie boarding, and dad Arnold broke his leg skiing in 2006.
