Jeff Bezos said that he is heartbroken over Amazon deaths. He released this statement 24 hours after the tornado struck. The tragedy took place at one of his Amazon plants, where at least 6 people died as a tornado ripped through the facility. The tornado caused a 40-foot high, 11-inch thick wall to collapse at the warehouse.

He expressed his grief on Twitter after he posted a photo on Instagram. In that photo, he was with the latest crew of his New Shepard rocket, including former NFL champion Michael Strahan.

Bezos said on Twitter, “The news from Edwardsville is tragic. We’re heartbroken over the loss of our teammates there, and our thoughts and prayers are with their families and loved ones.”

“All of Edwardsville should know that the Amazon team is committed to supporting them and will be by their side through this crisis. We extend our fullest gratitude to all the incredible first responders who have worked so tirelessly at the site.”

Bezos expressed his condolences 24 hours after the tornado hit. He spent the day cheering on the latest group of space travelers on Blue Origin. Early Sunday he said, “Happy crew this morning in the training center.”

Bezos looked grateful when the capsule came back to earth. He was seen hugging Michael Strahan, who made the trip with 4 other passengers. There was no mention of the tragedy before or after the flight. The celebration was unsettling for many people in the internet.
