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.""
