+ - Ecuadorian Navy Rescues Bezos After Kidney Stone Attack 1

Submitted by theodp
theodp (442580) writes "Hopefully, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos splurged on a Platinum Marketplace Health Insurance Plan for 2014 or he could be looking at some serious out-of-pocket costs. While vacationing aboard a cruise ship in the Galapagos Islands, where the State Department warns the quality of medical facilities and services are 'generally well below U.S. standards', Gawker reports that Bezos was rescued by the Ecuadorian Navy so he could receive treatment for a kidney stone attack on New Year's Day. The Ecuadorian Navy confirmed Bezos' rescue, which involved taking Bezos by Navy helicopter from Academy Bay in Santa Cruz Island to his private jet stationed on Baltra Island. Hey, it should make for a great Affordable Health Care Act ad!"
