The owner of Segway dies on a Segway

Not funny, but sadly ironic. . .from the New York Times today:

"Call it irony, fate, or simply an accident: in Britain, the owner of Segway died over the weekend when he apparently drove one of the devices off a cliff near his home, The Associated Press reported."

"Jimi Heselden, who owned Segway, Inc. until his death on Sunday.In West Yorkshire, police reported that James W. Heselden, 62, who took over control of the company earlier this year, accidentally steered the Segway off a 30-foot cliff and into a river while riding on his estate, about 140 miles from London."
