Amazon.com founder Jeff Bezos was airlifted from a cruise ship by the Ecuadorian Navy after suffering a kidney stone attack on Jan. 1.

"Galapagos: five stars. Kidney stones: zero stars," Bezos said in an e-mail provided by Amazon in response to a Reuters request for comment.




The website Galapagos Digital, citing Ecuadorian newspapers and blogs such as El Universo and El Comercio, said Bezos was flown by helicopter to his private jet on Baltra, site of one of the two airports in the Galapagos Islands.




Representatives for the Ecuadorian Navy did not respond to requests for comment.
