Apparently the owner of Segway Inc. has apparently died in an accident, on a segway.
Huffington Post – Multi-millionaire Jimi Heselden, the owner of Segway Inc. since December 2009, has died after reportedly driving a Segway scooter off a cliff and into a river. The fatal accident allegedly occurred at Heselden’s West Yorkshire estate, according to the Daily Mail. He was “using one of the machines–which use gyroscopes to remain upright and are controlled by the direction in which the rider leans–to inspect the grounds of his property,” writes the Daily Mail. “A spokesman for West Yorkshire Police said today: ‘Police were called at 11.40am yesterday to reports of a man in the River Wharfe, apparently having fallen from the cliffs above.’” Police told the Telegraph that a “Segway-style vehicle” was recovered at the scene of the accident.
