BOSTON (AP) -- A person in close contact with the family says Teresa Heinz Kerry, the wife of U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, has been transferred to a hospital in Boston.
The person says Heinz Kerry was flown from Nantucket Cottage Hospital to a Boston hospital on Sunday night. The person was not authorized to speak on the record and spoke on condition of anonymity.
The 74-year-old Heinz Kerry was admitted to the emergency room in Nantucket after 3:30 p.m. Sunday. A hospital spokesman said she arrived at that facility in critical condition, and remained that way early Sunday evening, although she had been stabilized.
Heinz Kerry is the widow of former U.S. Senator John Heinz, heir to the Heinz ketchup fortune. She married John Kerry in 1995.
