Paralympic athlete Oscar Pistorius began “retching loudly, possibly vomiting” during the presentation of graphic evidence on the shooting death of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp:

“Oscar Pistorius is making regular loud retching noises and appears to be vomiting as details of post-mortem examination are read out,” Sky’s Alex Crawford reported.
The live feed for Pistorius’ murder trial was cut for testimony from pathologist Professor Gert Saayman, who had warned the court the evidence would be “graphic.” During the testimony, the judge asked several times whether Pistorius was well enough to continue. His lawyer affirmed so, even as his brother had to leave the courtroom.
Pistorius is accused of murdering Steenkamp in the early morning hours of Valentine’s Day 2013 after an argument; he says he thought she was an intruder.
