Heli Goes in Lake With Amazon.com Chief

We're finding out that Amazon.com chief Jeff Bezos was the most famous person aboard the Gazelle that sank into a Texas lake last week.

All four aboard received injuries, varying from minor to serious; the heli will need some expensive work.

A company spokesman says the exec and the company are OK: "He's fine; we are business as usual."
