Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter was transported to a Canadian hospital on Wednesday after he became severely dehydrated while volunteering for Habitat for Humanity and helping to build houses in Winnipeg, Canada.

Habitat for Humanity CEO, Johnathan Reckford, issued a statement shortly after the former president was taken to a local hospital that Carter had become “dehydrated in the hot sun”, but was recovering and in good spirits.

“President Carter told us he is okay, and is being taken offsite for observation. He encourages everyone to stay hydrated and keep building.” Reckford said in the statement.

All further updates on the 92-year old former President’s condition are expected to come from the Atlanta based, Carter Center.
