It was the hottest toy of Christmas - and perhaps the biggest regret. Take U.S. Rep. Carlos Curbelo, who has an arm in a sling after a hoverboard accident.

"Confirmed - #hoverboard is for kids," the Miami Republican wrote on Twitter. "My daughter got it. I ended up in @BaptistHealthSF #ER. #hoverboardChristmas."

Democratic Rep. Gwen Graham offered condolences. "Ouch, my friend. Now you know what not to do; you will be a hoverboard master on your next ride. See you in 2016!"
