Oscar Pistorius “vomited and retched repeatedly and loudly” during his murder trial today. Pistorius was listening to testimony from pathologist Gert Saayman about the injuries that Reeva Steenkamp sustained on the night of her death. From ESPN.com:
The double-amputee runner, hunched over on a bench, vomited when he heard the description of Steenkamp’s wounds, prompting Masipa to briefly halt the testimony to ask chief defense lawyer Barry Roux to attend to his client. The judge also asked whether Pistorius was able to understand the proceedings. Roux said Pistorius’ reaction was not going to change, and a bucket was placed at his feet.
Because of the explicit nature of the testimony, it was not broadcast on television and reporters were not allowed to tweet exact quotes.
