LONDON (AP) -- A British businessman who last year bought the company that makes the two-wheeled Segway personal transporter has died in an accident on one of the vehicles.

Police in West Yorkshire said Monday that 62-year-old James Heselden and a Segway were found in the River Wharfe near Boston Spa, in northern England.

Police said a member of the public had reported seeing a man fall over a 30-foot (9-meter) drop into the river on Sunday.

Heselden bought control of the New Hampshire-based Segway company in December.

He made a fortune through his firm Hesco Bastion which developed a system replacing sand bags to protect troops.
