A Florida Congressman learned the hard way that his sense of balance may not be what it used to be, and ended up in the E.R. after taking a spill on a hoverboard his nephew received for Christmas. Rep. Carlos Curbelo (R-FL) tweeted a picture of himself wearing a sling on Saturday afternoon.
Curbelo later clarified that his nephew had actually been the recipient of the hoverboard, not his daughter--and that his daughter is quite the accomplished rider.
Since my #hoverboard accident is news, let me clarify that the device doesn't belong to my daughter. It's my nephew's. She did ride it well— Carlos Curbelo (@carloslcurbelo) December 27, 2015
