Jimmy Carter's Grandson Dies

- The 28-year-old grandson of former President Jimmy Carter has died, Carter said during his weekly Sunday school lecture.

Carter told the congregation Sunday that Jeremy Carter wasn’t feeling well Saturday and decided to take a nap; when his mother later checked on him his heart had stopped. Attempts to revive Jeremy via CPR were unsuccessful. Jeremy was one of 11 grandchildren of Carter and his wife Rosalynn. 

The tragedy, Carter said, caused him to be late to the Sunday school lecture for the first time ever.

Carter, 91, has battled cancer this year.
