Former President Jimmy Carter fell Monday night, Oct. 21, at his Georgia home for the second time this month, suffering a fractured pelvis.

“Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter had a fall yesterday evening at his home in Plains, Ga. He has been admitted to Phoebe Sumter Medical Center for observation and treatment of a minor pelvic fracture,” the Carter Center said in the released statement early Tuesday morning. “He is in good spirits and is looking forward to recovering at home.”

The 95-year-old Carter previously fell on Oct. 6, hitting his forehead on a sharp corner that resulted in a black eye and over 14 stitches. Just days later, the former president went ahead with plans to be on location at a Habitat for Humanity build in Nashville, Tennessee.

He also fell in May, resulting in a broken hip.

The 39th president and his wife Rosalynn, 92, recently celebrated their 73rd wedding anniversary, making them the longest-married presidential couple in American history.
