Sentence 1 is the correct version. Simple way to identify the use of as well as is to replace it with 'In addition to'.

For example: the above sentence can be reworded as

In addition to breaking his leg, he hurt his arm.

As well as is usually followed by an infinitive if the main clause has an infinitive or it is followed by by an -ing as in sentence1.
