While Oscar Pistorius has only started his six-year sentence for the killing of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp it seems that prison life is too much for the former Olympic hero.
Oscar was rushed to hospital as many athletes were taking to the grandest sporting stage. It quickly started to trend around social media that he may have tried to kill himself. Oscar is being held alone in a hospital cell away from other inmates.
The spokesperson for the hospital that he was treated at said in a statement “Oscar Pistorius denied speculations of a suicide attempt” however investigations are still being conducted.
Latest reports have said that the fallen sporting star was treated for wrist injuries from falling out of bed and has since returned to his cell. When pressed about what actually happened to warrant a visit to the hospital reporters were told: “As a policy principle, we cannot further discuss a particular offender’s personal condition in the public domain”.
Oscar has been referred to as a “broken” man since his conviction for the death of his girlfriend who was shot in their home.
