Oscar Pistorius Rushed From Jail To Hospital With Chest Pain

Imprisoned former Olympian Oscar Pistorius, who was jailed for six years in 2016 for murdering his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, has been taken to hospital, authorities have confirmed.The statement confirmed that Pistorius “was this morning taken to an outside hospital establishment for medical examination”, but he is expected to remain in hospital overnight and that there was “nothing out of the ordinary” in Pistorius’ hospitalisation.Oscar quickly rose to fame in the Paralympics, and made headlines when he became the first track and field athlete to compete in both the Paralympic and Olympic Games – racing against non-disabled athletes. But in February 2013, he shot and killed model Reeva Steenkamp at his home, alleging that he had mistaken her for an intruder.

His trial became the subject of widespread international attention, as he was initially cleared of murder in favour of a manslaughter charge – then convicted of murder on appeal in 2016.Photo Credit: Getty
