Pistorius Psychiatrist Suffers Heart Attack | Citifmonline

Mr Pistorius is due to complete a 30-day psychiatric assessment on Friday. The judge in his trial ordered the tests after a defence witness said the double amputee was suffering from Generalised Anxiety Disorder (Gad). Mr Pistorius denies intentionally killing his girlfriend and says he accidentally shot her through the toilet door on Valentines Day last year in a state of panic, mistaking the 29-year-old model and law graduate for an intruder. Mr Pistorius checked in as a day patient to Pretorias Weskoppies psychiatric hospital on 26 May, where he has been assessed by a team of health experts for seven hours a day. Three psychiatrists and a clinical psychologist were tasked to determine whether his state of mind and disability had an effect on him when he shot Ms Steenkamp. South Africas eNCA broadcaster earlier reported that the psychiatrists heart attack may have caused a delay in the handing over of the Paralympians psychiatric evaluation report.
