The guy who brought us the hesco barrier dies in a segway crash, ironic because he owned the company...


Hesco barriers, those dirt embankment devices that guard many a FOB or Firebase in Iraq or Afghanistan has saved countless lives as well as man hours filling and refilling sandbags by the use of troops or TCN labor. The guy whose company brought those to us, James Heselden, was apparently killed when his segway devise went over a 30 foot embankment. This is ironic due to the fact that he bought the company that makes them only a year or so ago.

Story here..

Here's to you sir, rest in piece and thank you for developing a product that has improved soldier safety and well being.
