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.
