ATLANTA (AP) — Former President Jimmy Carter is out of the hospital where he was treated after fracturing his pelvis in a recent fall.

The Carter Center said in a statement Thursday that the former president had been released from a hospital and was recovering at his home in Plains, Georgia.

The 95-year-old is the oldest living former president in U.S. history. He celebrated his 95th birthday on Oct. 1 and his 73rd wedding anniversary in July.
