A statement released by his nonprofit, The Carter Center, on Twitter, read:
"Former US President, Jimmy Carter, had a fall yesterday evening at his home in Plains, Georgia."
The Center continued:
"He has been admitted to Phoebe Sumter Medical Center for observation and treatment of a minor pelvic fracture. He is in good spirits and looking forward to recovering at home."
While Carter is recuperating, many fans of the former President, reacted to the news. One Twitter user wrote:
"Be well, Jimmy. Don't ever scare me like this. Love you to the moon and back."
"God bless you, President Carter. America wraps her arms around you, and wish you a speedy recovery."
While a third tweeted:
"Sweet man, he needs rest. He works too hard."
One person, praying for the former President's early recovery tweeted:
"So sorry, hearing about President Carter's fall at home. Praying for his early recovery and wellness. We're with him in spirit, and wish him all the best."
While another wrote a lengthy prayer for the injured President, with these words,
"God, thank you for a supernatural healing for President Carter. Keep him father in your care. Our world needs this awesome man of God. Shield, protect, and continue to use him in your service on this earth…"
The fall by the 39th President who held office until '81 makes it the second this month, and the third this year. Early this month, he ended up with a cut on his left eyebrow and got 14 stitches.
The President who had a public speaking engagement at the opening ceremony of Habitat for Humanity and Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter Foundation building project in Nashville, Tennessee, went with the stitched eye to the event.

During his speech, he tried to make light of his fall and told his audience that the fall could not prevent him from showing up in Nashville.

The former POTUS, who opened the Carter Center in '82, is dedicated to volunteering in the building projects with Habitat for Humanity, and despite being 95, he has zero plans to slow down.
