Harry Whittington, 78, the man shot and wounded by Vice President Dick Cheney in a hunting accident Saturday, suffered what is being called “a minor heart attack” Tuesday when birdshot still in his body migrated into his heart.

Dr. David Blanchard, the hospital’s emergency room chief, said Whittington suffered an “asymptomatic heart attack,” without displaying symptoms such as chest pains or breathing difficulty. He said a roughly 5 mm piece of shot became lodged in or alongside Whittington’s heart muscle, causing the organ’s upper two chambers to beat irregularly.
