Jimmy Carter Recovering After Fall, But He's Most Worried About Turkey Hunting

Former president Jimmy Carter undergoes surgery to repair broken hip after fall at his home

The Carter Center said the 39th US president was going out turkey hunting when he fell at his home.

Former US President Jimmy Carter was hospitalized on Monday following a fall at his home in Georgia, according to a statement by the Carter Center.

The statement said he underwent surgery at Phoebe Sumter Medical Center in Americus, Georgia. His wife, Rosalynn, is with him at the hospital.

Former President Jimmy Carter and First Lady Rosalynn Carter arrive for the Presidential Inauguration of Donald Trump at the US Capitol on January 20, 2017.

He received his first radiation treatment at age 90, and four months later, he was - remarkably - cancer free.


"I've had a wonderful life", he said at the time he revealed the cancer. "I've got thousands of friends and I've had an exciting and adventurous and gratifying existence".

Carter's legacy since leaving office has long overshadowed his rocky White House tenure, where he lost after one term amid a hostage crisis.

Carter has had some health issues in recent years. He continues to hold Sunday School in Georgia, and visits Habitat for Humanity projects across the country.

Former President Jimmy Carter, Kofi Annan, Gro Harlem Brundtland and other members of the Elders group attend a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin at the Novo-Ogaryovo residence, outside Moscow, on April 29, 2015.
