Hoverboards were one of the most popular gifts this holiday season. Across the country, many trying the craze for the first time reported injuries and falls similar to Tyson’s.

Florida Congressman Carlos Curbelo (R-FL) tweeted a photo the day after Christmas showing his arm in a sling after falling off a hoverboard.

On Monday, a Pahokee girl was transported to a local hospital by medical helicopter after she fell off a hoverboard. Her condition has not been released.
