Lawyer shot by USA vice president suffers heart attack

The lawyer shot by US Vice-President Dick Cheney in a hunting accident has suffered a minor heart attack. A Texas hospital spokesperson told the BBC that 78-year-old Harry Whittington suffered a heartbeat irregularity caused by a pellet lodged in his heart. Whittington has been moved back into intensive care and will be treated for at least another week. Despite the heart problem, doctors said there were no immediate fears for Whittington's life. Cheney accidentally injured his hunting companion while shooting quail on a ranch in Texas on Saturday.
