Former President Jimmy Carter was hospitalized Monday evening after falling at his home in Plains, Georgia and suffered a minor pelvic fracture.
Carter was hospitalized for observation, the Carter Center said Tuesday.
The former president fell at his home earlier this month, receiving 14 stitches above his eyebrow and bruising. Despite the injury, Carter and his wife, 92-year-old Rosalynn, still helped build a home with Habitat for Humanity in Nashville, Tennessee.
Carter, who turned 95 this month, is the longest living president in U.S. history — surpassing George H.W. Bush this spring.
He and his wife recently became the longest married presidential couple after more than 73 years. The 39th president also survived a dire cancer diagnosis in 2015.
