Bojana Jovanovski Responds to Ex-Boyfriend’s Suicide Attempt Over Recent Breakup
March 27, 2013 — Serbian media is reporting that Bojana Jovanoski’s ex-boyfriend and professional soccer player Petar Cavic attempted to commit suicide late Tuesday night, citing a recent breakup with the Serbian tennis star as the reason.
Just before midnight, Cavic jumped off of a bridge overlooking the Danube River in Pancevo, Serbia into freezing waters below and survived.
Vijesti reports that Cavic “sent his brother a text message, took off his shoes and jacket, crossed the bridge railing and jumped into the Danube.”
According to Novosti, nearby fishermen rescued him and pulled him from the water before ambulatory help arrived and transported him to the hospital.
According to Blic, Cavic only sustained leg injuries, and afterward, stated that Jovanovski had left him that same day. The statement further says that he admitted that he could not cope with the breakup so decided to jump off the bridge.
Jovanoski learned of the news today and released a statement:
“I am in shock. It’s true that Petar and I were in a relationship that ended recently. Even though we left on friendly terms, lately I have been 100% focused on training for the upcoming Fed Cup. So honestly I don’t know what’s the word, but I wish Petar all the best and that he can successfully come out of all of this.”
According to statements, the pair had been together for a few years.
