Segway Company Owner Killed On Machine

Posted by Andrew at 4:32 AM on September 27, 2010

In sad news, one of the owners of the Segway company has been found dead after apparently driving his machine off a cliff and into a river.

James Heseldon was named by West Yorkshire police in a short statement. He was pulled from the River Wharfe in Boston Spa, North Yorkshire, UK and declared dead at the scene on Sunday morning.

Mr Heseldon was a keen Segway owner and bought the Segway company earlier in 2010.  He was also the founder of Hesco Bastion, which developed a block unit system that provides blast and bullet protection to armed forces worldwide.

Our condolences to his family.
