Jimmy Carter hospitalized for procedure to relieve brain pressure

Former US president Jimmy Carter was hospitalized on Monday for a procedure to relieve brain pressure after recent falls, his organization said.
The 95-year-old Nobel laureate spent three days in the hospital last month after suffering a pelvic fracture.
The injury came weeks after he injured his head in a fall at home, recovering quickly to volunteer the next day — with a black eye and a bandage covering 14 stitches — at a Habitat for Humanity site.
He was taken to Emory University Hospital “for a procedure to relieve pressure on his brain,” The Carter Center said in a statement, adding it would take place on Tuesday morning.
“President Carter is resting comfortably, and his wife, Rosalynn, is with him,” it said.
