On Saturday morning, Kennedy felt ill at his home and went to Cape Cod Hospital, [Kennedy spokeswoman Stephanie] Cutter said. After a discussion with his doctors in Boston, the senator was flown to Massachusetts General.
An official who declined to be identified by name, citing the sensitivity of the events, had earlier said that Kennedy had stroke-like symptoms. The hospital declined to comment on his condition.
In October, Kennedy had surgery to repair a nearly complete blockage in a major neck artery. The discovery was made during a routine examination of a decades-old back injury.
