Former President Jimmy Carter collapsed on Thursday from dehydration on a Habitat for Humanity construction site in Winnipeg, Canada.
Carter subsequently received medical attention once an ambulance was called and EMTs came to his side on scene. The former president was then taken to a local hospital as a precautionary measure, but was said to be recovering.
"He encourages everyone to stay hydrated and keep building," a spokesperson for Habitat for Humanity said in a statement.
At 92, Carter has been a long-time supporter of Habitat for Humanity, frequently dedicating his efforts to hands-on work along with philanthropy. The last time Carter was in Winnipeg, in 1993, was for another Habitat for Humanity construction project for 18 other homes.
