Former President Jimmy Carter taken to hospital 'as a precaution'
ATLANTA - A spokeswoman for former U.S. President Jimmy Carter says he was taken to a hospital "as a precaution" after becoming dehydrated at a Habitat for Humanity construction project in Canada.
Carter spokeswoman Deanna Congileo says the 92-year-old Carter was taken to St. Boniface General Hospital for rehydration. Congileo says Carter's wife, Rosalynn Carter, is with him.
The Carters were at a build site in Winnipeg on Thursday when he became ill. The couple are in the middle of a multiday project building houses in various Canadian cities. It's the 34th time they have volunteered on projects for the Atlanta-based charity.
