Ironic but horribly tragic.

Seems like we lost one of the good ones. I'll be praying for his family. They must be devastated.

Can't you just jump off the thing at any time?

I saw this yesterday, and was thinking it must have been something like the steamroller scene in Dr. Evil's lair in the first Austin Powers movie. (The part where the guy is standing like 50 feet away from the steam roller, and it just keeps moseying along at 2 MPH, and the guy doesn't move...)

Seriously, I think the max speed on those things is something like 7 MPH. It's easy to do the tuck and roll, I would think! I am an expert at falling down, after all.

I am firewalled here, so I can't read the article, but what exactly is ironic about falling off a cliff in a segway?

Is this another Alanis Morrisette moment?

I believe the article said 12 mph.

ha no there has got to be some grounds (ridiculous grounds of course) for his family to sue for some reason.

The guy who invented the Segway company died while riding his product? How is that not ironic?

Ironic, I broke my arm by falling off a segway that was going 4 mph. (I know, sounds impossible, but this happens to me all the time. (Not breaking my arm, but crazy things like falling off a segway.) It's annoying.)
