Santa and his helpers will likely stick to the sleigh after a major skydiving mishap that was caught on camera in Gulfport, Florida on Saturday. The stunt didn't go as planned, though, and Krokus and Kristoff crashed into a tree before landing, Bay News 9 reported.

Krokus was taken to Bayfront hospital where he is undergoing surgeries for a broken leg.

The Tampa Bay Beach Bums were supporting an "Operation Santa" toy drive, according to the GoFundMe page.

Krokus was dropping in to a charity volleyball tournament with a 9-year-olds Elf on the Shelf named Kristoff and some volleyballs.

"I don't know where elves get their information, but I guess he found out that Santa wanted to bring him a little more excitement and get him down to Madison because he knew she'd be there selling raffle tickets and be in support of the event".
