David Ranta, the New York man who just left prison on Thursday after a wrongful conviction, suffered a heart attack the very next day.

Ranta served more than 20 years after he was found guilty of killing of a Brooklyn rabbi during a 19-90 diamond heist.

He was released when it was discovered a key witness lied.

His lawyer says Ranta is being treated at a local hospital.

Hours after his release from prison, his lawyer said Ranta planned to file a civil rights lawsuit against the city of New York and the Police Department because the incarceration had an immense effect on his health.
