Segway company owner dies---after driving a Segway over a cliff---you can make this stuff up and it is NOT an onion creation

This is soooo Paul Blart, Mall Cop sounding and I can't get the visual I have created for myself  out of my mind...

Tycoon who took over Segway firm dies in freak accident after riding one of the machines off hillside and into a river
""The multi-millionaire owner of the Segway company died in a freak accident yesterday when he rode one of the high-tech two-wheel machines off a cliff and into a river.

Former miner Jimi Heselden, 62, plunged into the River Wharfe while riding around his West Yorkshire estate in Boston Spa on a rugged country version of the Segway.

He bought the firm last December and was using one of the machines - which use gyroscopes to remain upright and are controlled by the direction in which the rider leans - to inspect the grounds of his property.""

  1. Unfortunately that wasn't his smartest decision. These ridiculous scooters are banned on British roads, and no one cared to remind him, for a good reason. I didn't know he was British until I read the "...worth £166million." (British Pounds)

    RIP Jimi Heselden

    P.S. The ones ridden by the Paul Blarts at Northeast Mall are so irritating. My encounters with them always consist of them creeping up from behind me and causing me to drop my shopping bags filled with treasure.
