QUITO (AP) ― An official in the Galapagos Islands says that Amazon founder Jeff Bezos was flown by helicopter from a cruise ship on Jan. 1 for medical attention after suffering intense pain because of a kidney stone.

Capt. Santiago Rubio, commander of the port of Santa Cruz, tells the Associated Press that Bezos was near the island on the cruise when he felt the stomach pains.

Rubio said Saturday the navy sent doctors to examine Bezos on New Year’s Day. The doctors determined that it was a kidney stone attack and Rubio authorized a helicopter to take the Amazon founder and Washington Post owner from the ship.

The captain said Bezos was taken to Santa Cruz port and from there a short flight to Baltra Island where his private jet was waiting to take him to the U.S. for medical treatment.
