Jesper Parnevik Falls off Segway, Breaks Rib

http://hotlinks.golf.com/2014/07/09/video-jesper-parnevik-breaks-rib-in-segway-accident/?sct=hp8 [QUOTE]Jesper Parnevik has a quirky sense of humor, so it’s sometimes hard to figure what he finds funny. Take this video Parnevik, a five-timer winner on the PGA Tour, posted of a recent Segway ride gone sideways and a spill that left him with a broken rib. “Haha, of all injuries I’v had, this is the most ridiculous!! Broke a rib and had to withdraw from all events this month,” Parnevik said in the caption.[/QUOTE]

Google Segway and accident and many hits. Lots of people can't immediately get used to the self balancing feature.

Broken rib, not hip....

Lucky it's not worse though.  Those old bones can be a little brittle! :-D

When I was in fourth or fifth grade, one of the inventors of the Segway (or he could have been a financier or something) did a presentation at my elementary school. Never got to actually ride the thing, which was tortuous to a group of nine-year-olds.

I got to ride one of the prototypes when I worked building circuit boards. The are decievably quick. They can go as fast as 17, that's what we were told.

Yup, totally dangerous. Almost every major city had banned them within a week of their release. Funny, considering the inventor's original idea was to create a new mode of urban transportation.

I used to ride them down in Walt Disney World. They had governors on theirs so they wouldn't exceed 6mph. Still, one lady on a tour fell (which was weird, because it was towards the end of the tour, so it's not like she couldn't handle it or anything). I don't think they have them anymore.

I'd still own one if I ever got the chance.

I saw them in Wash DC a couple of years back.

He's lucky he just busted a rib based on his full weight landing on the handle.  If a broken rib is as painful and slow to heal as torn cartilage between the ribs then he's going to miss more than a month.
