Former US President Jimmy Carter, 95, rushed to hospital after ‘nasty accident’ | World | News

The 95-year-old was taken to the Phoebe Sumter Medical Center after he suffered “a minor pelvic fracture” on Monday, a spokeswoman for the Carter family has confirmed.

Her statement said the 95-year-old is in good spirits and looking forward to recovering at home.

This is the third time Mr Carter has fallen in recent months.

Mr Carter first fell in the spring and required hip replacement surgery.

The 95-year-old fell again earlier this month and despite receiving 14 stitches, travelled the next day to Nashville, Tennessee, to rally volunteers and help build a Habitat for Humanity home.

Mr Carter is the oldest living former president in US history.

Mr Carter served as the 39th president of the US.

Mr Carter was commander-in-chief from January 20, 1977 to January 20, 1981.

He and his wife, 92-year-old Rosalynn, recently became the longest married first couple.

They surpassed George and Barbara Bush with more than 73 years of marriage.
