Posted on August 07, 2016
Convicted murderer Oscar Pistorius has been rushed to hospital after he sustained injuries to his wrists.
The Paralympic gold medalist was sentenced to six years in prison for murdering his girlfriend Reeve Steenkamp by shooting her at his home in 2012.
The athlete was taken to Pretoria’s Kalafong Hospital on Saturday afternoon at around 12.30pm with wrist injuries.
Prison authorities said Pistorius told them he had injured himself falling out of bed. But a prison source told City Press that Pistorius had injured himself intentionally.
Disgraced sprinter Pistorius won gold medals at the 2004, 2008 and 2012 Paralympics in Athens, Beijing and London respectively.
He was originally found guilty of culpable homicide but the conviction was later upgraded to murder.
