Lets be clear I'm not making fun of someones death.
my friends and I have commented several times on how unstable and somewhat dangerous the segway seemed.
there are several videos of people smashing their brains out with the little chariots of doom.
I can't ignore the irony though.
FOXNews.com - Owner of Segway Company Dies After Driving Famous Scooter Off Cliff
The multi-millionaire owner of the Segway company died Sunday when he fell off a cliff while riding the famous motorized scooter, the Telegraph reports.
Jimi Heselden, 62, died after skidding off a cliff at his estate in Yorkshire, England. He was reportedly testing a cross-country version of the upright, two-wheeled scooter when he plunged from the cliff.
Heselden's body was later found in a river by a passerby, the newspaper reports.
"Police were called at 11: 40 a.m. yesterday to reports of a man in the River Wharfe, apparently having fallen from the cliffs above," a spokesman for the West Yorkshire police told the newspaper.
"A Segway-style vehicle was recovered. He was pronounced dead at the scene," the spokesman reportedly said. "At this time we do not believe the death to be suspicious."
