Amazon Worker Jumps Off Company Building After E-Mail Note

 

An Amazon.com Inc. employee was injured when he leaped off a building at the company?s Seattle headquarters in what police characterized as a suicide attempt.

The man, who wasn?t identified by authorities, sent an e-mail visible to hundreds of co-workers, including Chief Executive Officer Jeff Bezos, before the incident occurred, according to a person familiar with the matter. The man survived the fall from Amazon?s 12-story Apollo building at about 8:45 a.m. local time Monday and was taken to a Seattle hospital, police said.

The man had recently put in a request to transfer to a different department, but was placed on an employee improvement plan, a step that can lead to termination if performance isn?t improved, said the person, who asked not to be identified discussing company personnel matters. More than 20,000 people work in multiple buildings at Amazon?s headquarters.
