Jimi Heselden - Owner of Segway Inc. Dies On A Segway

James William “Jimi” Heselden, 62, sadly passed away this morning (Sept. 27) at 11:40 AM when it was reported a man fell from a cliff into the River Wharfe. Heselden bought Segway Inc., maker of the Segway personal transport system, in 2010. Ironically, the man was riding a Segway when plunging to his demise.

The devices are electric, two-wheeled, self-balancing machines. They were invented by Dean Kamen and unveiled in 2001.

A family spokesman said Mr. Heselden was a “much-loved father and husband”.

My thoughts and prayers definitely go out to his friends and family at this difficult time.
