Segway = death

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."

some are saying this was him killing himself.... I'm not so convinced that it wasn't rider or product error though.
