We have some discrepancy in official words. The cops say they got a 911 call from the home at exactly 3:38 PM, but the hospital says she was admitted at “about 3:30″. That’s a little weird the cops would get the call, get the ambulance to the house, pack her up, and then have her arrive at the hospital fast enough for the hospital to say she arrived at “about 3:30″. Should’ve been at least after 4.
BOSTON (AP) — Teresa Heinz Kerry, the wife of U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and heir to a ketchup company fortune, is in critical condition at a Boston hospital.
Heinz Kerry was flown to Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston on Sunday night after doctors at a hospital on Massachusetts’ Nantucket Island stabilized her, said Glen Johnson, a spokesman for Kerry. The secretary of state was with his 74-year-old wife as an ambulance first transported her to the island hospital, and also during her transfer to the Boston facility.
“Late Sunday afternoon, Mrs. Teresa Heinz Kerry was taken by ambulance to Nantucket Cottage Hospital, accompanied by her husband, Secretary of State John Kerry,” Johnson said in a statement. “Once doctors had stabilized her condition, she was transferred to Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, again accompanied by the Secretary. The family is grateful for the outpouring of support it has received and aware of the interest in her condition, but they ask for privacy at this time.”
Heinz Kerry was admitted into the emergency room at Nantucket Cottage Hospital after 3:30 p.m. Sunday, hospital spokesman Noah Brown said
Heinz Kerry arrived at the facility in critical condition, and remained that way early Sunday evening, although doctors had stabilized her, Brown said.
Before Sunday’s emergency, John Kerry had been at the Nantucket home since returning from a nearly two-week, around-the-world diplomatic trip to the Mideast and Southeast Asia in the pre-dawn hours of July 3.
Neither the family nor hospital officials released any more details about her medical emergency or her condition Sunday night.
Boston Herald: Nantucket Police Lt. Jerry Adams said fire, police, and emergency services were called to the Kerry home at 3:38 p.m. for medical aid.
