President Jimmy Carter fell at his Plains, Georgia home Monday morning while preparing for a turkey hunt, according to a release from The Carter Center.

She said that Carter underwent surgery at a medical center in Americus, Georgia. His wife, Rosalynn, is with him at the hospital.

"President Carter said his main concern is that turkey season ends this week, and he has not reached his limit", the Carter Center said in its statement.

Former President Jimmy Carter and First Lady Rosalynn Carter arrive for the Presidential Inauguration of Donald Trump at the US Capitol on January 20, 2017.

Carter, 94, disclosed in 2015 that cancer that had been discovered on his liver and had also been found on his brain. "I've had an exciting and adventurous and gratifying existence".
