US President Released From Hospital

Former President Jimmy Carter has been released from a hospital in Canada after being treated for dehydration, a spokesperson for Carter confirmed Friday.

The Carter Center said the former president, who was in Winnipeg with Habitat for Humanity, was released from St. Boniface General Hospital Friday morning.

A witness told CBC they witnessed Carter collapse while he was working with Habitat for Humanity, building a home in Winnipeg.

An ambulance arrived on scene shortly after firefighters and paramedics scrambled to attend to the 92-year-old former president. Carter was taken to the hospital as a precaution, according to a spokesperson for Habitat for Humanity.
