Patrick Schwarzenegger injured in skiing accident

The 18-year-old son of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver said he has been treated for injuries after getting in “a little ski accident” in Idaho.

Patrick Schwarzenegger tweeted Saturday that he had received stitches “down the back and but” after the accident, and he also thanked doctors who he said cared for him in Sun Valley.

He provided a link to a photo he posted to the social-networking application Instagram, showing a deep cut on his lower back. He also said he had been bruised in the accident but did not provide details on how he got injured.

A spokesman for Ms. Shriver did not provide details.

In 2006, Arnold Schwarzenegger broke his leg in a ski accident at Sun Valley while he was governor of California.

James Cameron to dive to Earth’s deepest place

A calm James Cameron has broken his own record with the world’s deepest solo submarine dive, plunging 5.1 miles in the Pacific Ocean near Papua New Guinea, the filmmaker said Thursday.

But that’s nothing. Later this month, he said, he plans to descend to the deepest place on Earth.

Mr. Cameron is aiming to plunge to the bottom of Challenger Deep in the Mariana Trench of the Pacific Ocean, 200 miles southwest of Guam. It’s 6.8 miles deep. Humans have been there only once before, when a two-man U.S. Navy team went for just 20 minutes in 1960.

The “Avatar” and “Titanic” filmmaker said he wasn’t frightened when he dove nearly that far in a practice run Wednesday that lasted 3 1/2 hours on the bottom.

“Certainly not nervous or scared during the dive,” Mr. Cameron told the Associated Press in a ship-to-shore phone interview. “You tend to be a little apprehensive ahead of the dive about what could go wrong. When you are actually on the dive, you have to trust the engineering was done right.”

Later, he acknowledged that the bone-crushing pressure at five miles and seven miles deep “is in the back of your mind.”

Mr. Cameron is using a one-man, 12-ton lime-green sub that he helped design called Deepsea Challenger. He is partnering with the National Geographic Society, where he is an explorer-in-residence.

“The deep trenches are the last unexplored frontier on our planet, with scientific riches enough to fill a hundred years of exploration,” Mr. Cameron said in an earlier statement.
