Carter collapses in Canada

Jimmy Carter Dehydrates While Building Houses in Canada

Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter collapsed Thursday while at a Habitat for Humanity build site in Canada. Reportedly, one camera on site captured Carter saying "I'm tired", but he continued to work up until his collapse around 9:30 local time.

"Habitat for Humanity is the best way I've found in my life to put my Christian faith into action", President Carter told volunteers Thursday, according to a tweet from Reckford.

A motorcade was seen taken him to St. Boniface Hospital.

Carter served as US president from 1977 to 1981.

"President Carter told us he is OK and is being taken offsite for observation", Habitat said in a statement posted on social media.

"He encourages everyone to stay hydrated and keep building", the spokesperson said.

Habitat for Humanity pledged to build 150 homes in Canada to mark the country's 150 anniversary of confederation.

Reckford said any further information on Carter's condition will have to come from the Carter Center, a not-for-profit organization founded by the ex-president.

The Carter Center said he is in the hospital being rehydrated and his wife is with him.

Carter and his wife were planning to help with the work Thursday and Friday.

Two years ago, former President Jimmy Carter announced to the world that he was battling cancer.
