Plenty of people opened up a gift to find a hoverboard this year. A hearty chunk of that group has already crashed them. Combining an already combustible gimmick-toy with a day filled with alcoholic beverages and familial angst is a recipe for wiping out.
Be safe out there.
Cousin got a hover board for xmas, my aunt tried it, fell, broke her wrist and is now at the hospital and needs surgery. #MerryChristmas

I crashed my nephews hoverboard last night and hit my head. Today I feel like a 300 lb woman fought me after a night of drinking whiskey.
