Jimmy Carter, the 39th president of the United States, was hospitalized

Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter was admitted to an Atlanta hospital for a procedure to relieve brain pressure from bleeding caused by recent falls.

Carter, 95, the country’s oldest living president, was admitted to Emory University Hospital three weeks after suffering a minor pelvic fracture in a fall at his home in Plains, Georgia. He was released from the hospital a few days after that accident.
A previous fall earlier in October required stitches to Carter’s face, but he resumed work soon after on a homebuilding project for the nonprofit group Habitat for Humanity.
In May, the former Democratic president broke his hip, also at home, requiring him to undergo surgery. He was hospitalized briefly in 2017 for dehydration and was diagnosed with skin cancer in 2015.
