Unhappy Kicking myself for giving in

The weather finally cleared enough to give the hoverboard a try.

I was first, knee and wrist protection on and go!
I managed to make it turn, move back and forth and in circles.

Then my mother-in-law tried.
She never managed to get both legs on it.
When it moved back at her with one foot on it, she did not take her foot off but slowly turned away from it, gently dropping to the tarmac as if casually sitting down. She moved away from me and I could not stop her fall.
No problem, she just wanted to get up and try again.

But she couldn't. Too much pain.
We finally got her up but she could not use her right leg anymore.
I got the car and brought her to the doctor. She could not get out of the car, so the doctor examined her in the car, then sent us to the hospital.
She has broken her hip

That's it for this hoverboard...
