Jimmy Carter taken to Canadian hospital

14 July 2017

Former President Jimmy Carter collapsed at a Habitat build in Winnipeg Thursday morning.

WXIA in Atlanta reports that he was heard saying "I'm exhausted", but continued working.

Carter was "getting medical attention after collapsing at a Habitat for Humanity building site in Winnipeg" on July 13, according to Metro News, a Canadian news site. It left the site, followed by Carter's motorcade, which is now parked outside the emergency doors at St. Boniface Hospital.

Habitat for Humanity pledged to build 150 homes in Canada to mark the country's 150 anniversary of confederation.

The one-term Democratic President was in Winnipeg building houses as part of a weeklong project he's participating in with his wife, Rosalynn.

Carter, a Democrat who served in the White House from January 1977 to January 1981, received the Nobel Peace Prize in 2002 for his humanitarian work.

Global News cameras saw the 92-year-old former president stop working and say "I'm tired" before a chair was provided to him.

Carter, whose family had a history of cancer, disclosed in August 2015 that he had been diagnosed with melanoma, a form of skin cancer, that had spread to his brain and elsewhere and had been spotted during liver surgery. He is not the only former president to be hospitalized recently.
