Former President Jimmy Carter was hospitalized Monday night with a brain injury.

According to NBC News, the 95-year-old former president was taken to Emory University Hospital in Atlanta and will have “a procedure” performed Tuesday.

Mr. Carter will have a procedure done to relieve pressure on his brain, which NBC described as the result of “bleeding due to his recent falls.”

A spokeswoman told the Associated Press that Mr. Carter is resting comfortably, and is with his wife, Rosalynn.

The Rev. Tony Lowden, Mr. Carter’s pastor at Maranatha Baptist Church in Plains, Georgia, where the former president still teaches Sunday school, told AP on Monday night that the ex-president was hospitalized after “a rough day.”

“We just need the whole country to be in prayer for him,” Mr. Lowden said in a telephone interview.

Mr. Carter is the oldest surviving president in American history.
