From Around the Web
Segway's Boss Dies While Riding the Segway: The Segway is a pretty popular item, and many would consider it a pretty safe device. On Sunday, the police were called to Segway's boss, Jimi Heselden's home, at 11:40AM. When they arrived, they found Heselden dead at the scene, and they recovered a county version of the Segway, believed to be the X2. The report rules out foul play, and it is believed that Heselden rolled off of a cliff and into a river wharf on Sunday, September 26th. Heselden was reportedly worth £166 million thanks to his defense contracts, as well as the success over the Segway.
