In a classic case of ‘too weird to be true therefore it must be so’, the owner of Segway has tragically died by – wait for it – riding his Segway off a cliff into a river.
I wonder if someone will trot out the ‘that’s how he would have wanted to go’ line at his funeral (falling off a cliff into a river whilst riding a ‘personal transport device’? I doubt that factored into his plans!).
RIP crazy Segway dude. Roll on!
(on a serious note, Mr Helesden sounded like a decent bloke, giving plenty back to charity and the local community and our sympathies go out to his family)
