Jimmy Carter, the 94-year-old former President of the United States, underwent surgery for a broken hip after falling at his Georgia home.


A statement issued by the Carter Center said the former president was leaving to go turkey hunting. His recovering is not his main concern:

"President Carter said his main concern is that turkey season ends this week, and he has not reached his limit."

Carter is recovering at this home in Georgia and hopes that the State of Georgia will "allow him to roll over the unused limit to next year.


He was treated at a nearby hospital, and the former First Lady Rosalynn Carter, Carter's wife of 73 years, was at his side.

Carter has survived cancer in the past and is currently the oldest living former president in the history of the United States.

Carter served as the 39th President and served from 1977 until 1981. He was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2002 for his work in co-founding the Carter Center.

The Center was founded in 1982. It's a not-for-profit organization with a focus on human rights, conflict resolution, public health, and mental health.
