Amazon.com founder and Washington Post owner Jeffrey P. Bezos was feeling well Sunday after suffering a kidney stone while vacationing in the Galapagos Islands over the New Year’s holiday, a spokesman said.
“Jeff got a good outcome,” Amazon.com spokesman Drew Herdener said in an e-mail. “No surgery was required, and he’s feeling well.”
The Ecuadoran navy flew Bezos by helicopter from Academy Bay on Santa Cruz Island to his private jet on Baltra Island on New Year’s Day after he became ill.
Bezos, who bought The Post from the Graham family for $250 million in October, was flown aboard his jet to the United States for emergency treatment.
