Jimi Heselden Passes Away After Driving Segway Off A Cliff

Posted Sep 27, 2010

Jimi Heselden was a businessman that served as the Chairman of Hesco Bastion and was an investor in Segway. It turns out that Segway Inc. was acquired by a UK-based firm that was backed by Heselden. Unfortunately Heselden drove off of a cliff while riding on a ruggedized version of a Segway. He was found early Sunday morning in the River Wharfe while touring his estate. Heselden was 62 years old and made a lot of his fortune by designing wire cage walls used by NATO, American, and British forces. [Engadget]
