Florida congressman becomes just another hoverboard statistic

On Christmas Day, Rep. Carlos Curbelo (R-FL), a grown-ass man, became the latest adult to get absolutely wrecked on a hoverboard. 

After learning the hard way that hoverboards are deathtraps, the freshman Republican tweeted a picture of himself with his left arm in a sling.  

Curbelo later clarified that the hoverboard belonged to his nephew. 
The Congressman, sadly, is now just another pointless hoverboard injury statistic, joining an already robust list.
