The family of a New York prison inmate named Andy Henriquez has filed a New York wrongful death lawsuit over his death while in solitary confinement at Rikers Island. Henriquez had been imprisoned in 2011 on a murder charge. In the days leading up to his death in April, 2013, he complained constantly of chest pains and shortness of breath. Despite the fact that his family and friends begged prison officials to provide Henriquez proper medical care, a prison doctor visited him in his cell and prescribed hand cream. He was found dead in the cell floor later, having died to a torn aorta.
