    Original report: Former President Jimmy Carter fell Monday at his Georgia home and suffered a "minor pelvic fracture," the Carter Center tweeted Tuesday morning.

    According to WSB-TV and The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Carter, who lives in Plains, was admitted to Phoebe Sumter Medical Center for observation and treatment.

    "He is in good spirits and is looking forward to recovering at home," the tweet read.

    It is Carter's second fall this month and third this year.

    In May, Carter fell on his way to go turkey hunting and had surgery to repair a broken hip. 

    Carter once again fell on Oct. 6, which left him with a black eye and multiple stitches. But that didn't keep him from attending the kick-off to a Habitat for Humanity the next day in Nashville. 

    The former president celebrated his 95th birthday on Oct. 1.
