Oscar Pistorius's Dramatic Courtroom Breakdown And Vomiting Fit In Pictures

The Oscar Pistorius trial took a dramatic twist after the accused sprinter vomited.

It happened during a pathologist's testimony about the injuries inflicted on his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp, after he shot her dead.

Details cannot be broadcast or reported by court order, but Pistorius repeatedly retched in the Pretoria court as Saayman described the gruesome injuries.

Pistorius denies intentionally killing Steenkamp, a model and reality TV star, and says he believed she was an intruder when he shot her on Valentine's Day 2013.
