WASHINGTON - US Secretary of State John Kerry's wife, Teresa Heinz Kerry, was taken by ambulance to a hospital on the Massachusetts island of Nantucket on Sunday with an unspecified medical condition, a source close to the family said.

"She was stricken around 4 p.m. and taken away by ambulance to the local hospital," said the source, who spoke on condition of anonymity. "He (Kerry) is with her."

The source declined to provide details on Heinz Kerry's health other than to say that her trip to the hospital from the family's home was necessitated by a "medical condition" rather than an accident.

Kerry and his wife have long vacationed on Nantucket, an island about 30 miles (48 km) off the south coast of Cape Cod, where many wealthy Americans - from hedge fund managers and executives to the heirs of New England fortunes - have summer homes.
