Former President Jimmy Carter has been taken to the hospital after landing at Cleveland Hopkins Airport Tuesday morning, sources said.
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.”
Cleveland Hopkins Airport officials told NewsChannel5 that airport EMS crews were called to an incoming Delta flight at 11:30 a.m. for a passenger who felt sick. Upon arrival, they learned that the passenger was President Jimmy Carter. Airport EMS crews did an initial checkup of him on scene to see if he was OK, and he was then transported to MetroHealth Medical Center, where he is currently.
President Carter, 85, was expected at Joseph-Beth Booksellers in Legacy Village at noon to sign his new book, titled “White House Diary,” but has not shown up yet.
