Jeff Bezos suffers kidney stone attack while vacationing

Amazon founder and CEO, Jeff Bezos, was airlifted from a cruise sailing at the Galapagos Islands. According to Drew Herdener, a spokesman for Amazon, Bezos was on a vacation on New Year's Day when he suffered a kidney stone attack.

He was eventually flown by an Ecuadorian navy helicopter from the ship to his private jet on Baltra Island. "I sent Jeff your note and here's what he sent back: 'Galapagos: five stars. Kidney stones: zero stars,'" Herdener said.

Apart from owning the largest Internet retailer today, Bezos also owns a space exploration company called Blue Origin, and recently acquired the reputable newspaper company, The Washington Post.
