CNN: Jimmy Carter hospitalized

Former President Jimmy Carter has been hospitalized in Cleveland after unknown health issue on plane, an airport official tells CNN.

A local ABC News affiliate adds:

NewsChannel5 crews at MetroHealth Medical Center said an ambulance arrived with Secret Service crews and an Ohio State Highway Patrol cruiser following it. People in the emergency room at the hospital told our crew they were kicked out because they were told "President Carter is coming."

Carter was in Cleveland to sign copies of his new book, White House Diary. He is 85 years old.

Jimmy Carter is a rare jewel: totally kind and honest.

What a great man.

Was he carried off the plane or assisted off the plane or did he walk off the plane under his own power?

He's the one living former president who wasn't a shill, cheater or idiot. Hang in there Jimmy.

it's lonely at the top.
