Segway Founder Dies in Segway Accident

Jimi Heselden, the owner of the Segway company, died on Sunday after he rode a Segway off a cliff at his estate in Britain. His death appears to be an accident—police say they do not believe it to be suspicious. “A Segway-style vehicle was recovered,” said a police spokesman. Heselden bought the Segway company in December 2009. He was ranked 195th on the Sunday Times’ list of rich Britons, and had recently given some $15 million to charity.
