Jimmy Carter was taken to a Winnipeg hospital today (Thursday) after collapsing from de-hydration while working in the hot sun helping to build houses for Habitat for Humanity.
“President Carter has been working hard all week, the Carter Center said, in a statement. "He was dehydrated working in the hot sun and has been taken offsite for observation. He encourages everyone to stay hydrated and keep building,”
Carter was transported to St. Boniface General Hospital for re-hydration as a precaution and former first lady Rosalynn Carter is with him, the center said.
