The owner of the Segway company has died, apparently in an accident involving one of his upright two-wheeled vehicles, police in England said Monday.
The body of James Heselden, 62, was pulled from the River Wharfe in northern England on Sunday, police said.
A Segway-type vehicle was recovered from the river, police said.
The incident is not thought to be suspicious, police said.
Heselden’s family said in a statement that “there is absolutely nothing to suggest it was anything other than a tragic accident.
