The 39th President of the United States, Jimmy Carter, was hospitalized on Tuesday after he sustained a fall at his Georgia home Monday night that resulted in a fractured pelvis, The Carter Center said in a press release.
"Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter had a fall yesterday evening at his home in Plains, Ga," The Carter Center tweeted. "He has been admitted to Phoebe Sumter Medical Center for observation and treatment of a minor pelvic fracture. He is in good spirits and is looking forward to recovering at home."
This is the second injury for the 95-year-old Carter in recent weeks, who earlier this month, fell in his home, sustaining a black eye that required 14 stitches above his brow. However, that didn't keep the former president down after he appeared a few days later at a Habitat for Humanity project to build a home in Tennessee.
The former president has already survived cancer in 2015, surpassing George H.W. Bush as the longest-lived U.S. president in history earlier this year.
