Brandi Glanville lands in the hospital, thanks to her hoverboard

Thought you were the only one trying out a hoverboard this holiday season?

Former The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Brandi Glanville found herself on an iWalk this weekend, and then she found herself off her iWalk.

She tweeted, "Swollen paw 6 stitches, I'm officially done with iWalk slash hover board." Glanville gave an update on her ailments on Monday: "Antibiotics equals no alcohol, allergy to pain meds equals pain, 6 stitches & a hairline fracture #priceless."

Mike Tyson also fell victim to the craze.

Patty Davis of the CPSC told People, "We've seen a lot of falls over the holidays. We've seen at least 39 emergency room treated injuries associated with hoverboards — concussions, fractures, contusions, abrasions." Add the hefty price tag of your hoverboard to the cost of the hospital bill and it's looking like less than a Merry Christmas for anyone (aka everyone) who can't keep their balance. Get better soon, Brandi!
