Former President Carter was hospitalized Monday evening after he fell in his home and fractured his pelvis.

Carter, 95, was admitted to Phoebe Sumter Medical Center in Americus, Ga., for observation and treatment of the injury, which was described as "minor."

He is said to be “in good spirits and is looking forward to recovering at home,” the Carter Center tweeted.

A Carter Center spokesperson did not immediately respond to a request for comment from The Hill.

Carter, the longest-living former U.S. president, fell at his home last month and required stitches. But a day later, he showed up with a bandage on his head and a bruise on his left eye to volunteer to help build homes for Habitat for Humanity in Tennessee.
