A distressed Amazon employee sent out an email to hundreds of co-workers criticizing the company before leaping off its Seattle headquarters in a failed suicide attempt.
The unidentified worker, who had been placed on an â€œemployee improvement plan,â€ jumped off the 12-story building in the downtown area Monday morning and survived the fall, Bloomberg Technology reported.
Before taking the plunge, the worker sent out a mass email to Amazon employees, including CEO Jeff Bezos, saying how he was displeased with the companyâ€™s recent handling of his transfer request, according to the news site, citing an anonymous source.
In the email, the man also hinted that he might hurt himself.
â€œOur thoughts are with our colleague as he continues to recover,â€ Amazon said in a statement. â€œHeâ€™s receiving some of the best care possible and we will be there to support him throughout the recovery process.â€
