Harry Whittington: The man Dick Cheney shot (Video)
He still has a tiny lead pellet lodged in his throat, a pellet near his heart and 28 other pieces of lead scattered beneath his skin, all thanks to a gunshot fired by the former vice president of the United States.
It has been almost five years since Dick Cheney missed a bird and ended up firing at Harry Whittington. Whittington has stayed as much out of the public eye as he could after being thrust into the spotlight. Until The Post's Paul Farhi tracked him down in Austin and asked the man how he was doing.
It's a fascinating story to revisit, revealing how much more danger Whittington had been in than was previously reported. And Farhi asks the question most people want to know: Did Dick Cheney ever apologize to the man he shot?
And watch the original ABC report on the shooting:
