segway death

The founder of Segway has ironically been found dead, having driven a two-wheeled ’Segway-style’ vehicle off a cliff whilst on his North Yorkshire grounds. Jimi Heselden, owner of Hesco Bastion, apparently fell off the cliffs of his estate, where a Segway-style vehicle was recovered in the process. Unfortunately, he was already pronounced dead at the scene when the calvary arrived. RIP Jimi, and thanks for your two-wheeled creation that helped people who were less mobile get around fast, efficiently and safely. Oh yeah, and who could ever forget about the movie Mall Cop?
