Jimmy Carter discharged from hospital after suffering from dehydration

Former President Jimmy Carter was discharged from a Canadian hospital Friday morning after collapsing a day earlier due to dehydration.

The 92-year-old was transported to a hospital in Winnipeg on Thursday while volunteering on a home-building project for Habitat for Humanity, a spokesperson for The Carter Center said.

"He and Mrs. Carter extend their appreciation for the many well-wishes he received worldwide," Deanna Congileo said in a statement.

The long-time supporter of Habitat for Humanity attended the last day of the building project as scheduled.
