Package-tossing Amazon delivery driver fired

MIAMI – After the same delivery woman for online giant Amazon was caught on video two days in a row recklessly throwing packages toward a customer's home in South Florida, Amazon fired the driver.

"We have high standards for our delivery partners and expect every package to be handled with care," Amazon spokesman Ernesto Apreza said. "This delivery partner will no longer be delivering on behalf of Amazon and we will continue to work with customers directly on matters related to their package delivery.”

Over the weekend, the woman was seen hurling packages over a security fence at a doctor's home without waiting to see if he would answer the bell.

The second case captured on surveillance video occurred Monday afternoon in Miami near Southwest 47th Street and 157th Avenue.

At the new home, there is no security fence blocking the woman's access to the front door. Instead, the woman, while still seated in the car, simply throws the packages out of her window toward the porch.

A loud thud can be heard when the first package lands on the front driveway.
