Jimmy Carter hospitalized after fall at home

Former President Jimmy Carter, 95, suffered a fall at his home yesterday, fracturing his pelvic bone. According to a tweet from The Carter Center, he was admitted to the hospital for observation and treatment.

Carter has had several other falls this year, including one in May where he broke a hip and one earlier this month where he cut his forehead, which required fourteen stitches. Despite his mishaps, Carter remains very active, teaching Sunday school and helping to build homes with Habitat for Humanity.

The former president has also had previous battles with cancer, but is cancer free at the moment. He is also the oldest living United States president.
