SAN ANTONIO – Santa was not at all sneaky Christmas morning, skipping the milk and cookies at one San Antonio home this year and instead going straight for a hoverboard go-kart near the decorated tree.

However, what “Santa” -- aka dad -- didn’t know was that he was going to go straight for a piece of furniture and then reverse back into the Christmas tree. 

In a Facebook video sent just after 2 a.m. on Christmas morning, Kristie Scipio shared her husband Trez’s “accident” saying in the post, “’Santa’ trying out the hoverbard go cart … warning you will pee yourself.” 

Seconds into the less-than-a-minute video, Scipio is heard saying, “I’m already laughing inside” and later adding, “This is a disaster.”

Just before putting the hoverboard go-kart in drive mode, Scipio tells her husband: “I’m really not waking the kids up to go to the ER.” 

Moments later, her husband lifts the hoverboard’s handles and goes head-on into a piece of furniture.
