Weston's own Local10 station wrote that Christopher's golf cart flipped while he was driving and that the Cuban Dancing With the Stars alum's son was found "pinned underneath."

Christopher was traveling with two other females, 13 and 14, who "were thrown from the golf cart" according to Broward Sheriff's Office deputies.

"We're on the road, we flipped a golf cart," the person who made the emergency 9-1-1 call was heard saying. A voice that many think belonged to the son of the telenovela stars could be heard saying, "Why did I do this? Why did I do this? ... My parents are going to be so mad at me."

According to investigators, Christopher apparently took a sharp turn while driving that caused the cart "to roll near Lake Ridge Lane" around 2:15 p.m. on Sunday.

William Levy and Elizabeth Gutierrez speak out on their son's accident.

On Wednesday, William took to Instagram to thank the fans who have been praying for his son. In Spanish, the Triunfo del amor actor wrote, "Christopher is a child of Faith. We know that God was there with him and the other children and we have nothing but words of gratitude to God who never fails us."

Christopher's mother, Elizabeth Gutierrez, who is of Mexican descent and best known for her leading roles in telenovelas such as El Rostro de Analía and El Fantasma de Elena, also broke her silence regarding the unfortunate golf cart accident, posting an identical caption to William's, with her own photo of herself and her eldest.

The couple also share 10-year-old daughter Kailey Alexandra.

"All in God's hands," Christopher added as a comment on a post captioned, "Get well soon stud. You're in god's hands, he'll help you recover gang. Love ya lil bro."

We sure hope that Christopher and his friends make a swift recovery. Our thoughts are with them and their families.
