    Default Nurse kills self after Australian DJs' hoax phone call...

    Kate and William 'deeply saddened' to hear 'excellent' nurse who put through Australian DJs' hoax call has been found dead in suspected suicide

    A nurse who transferred a prank phone call from two Australian radio presenters about the Duchess of Cambridge has died in a suspected suicide – two days after being duped.

    The body of Jacintha Saldanha, who was working on the switchboard, was found at an address yards away from King Edward VII Hospital, where she worked, just before 9.30am today.

    She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.

    Not really understanding what would have caused her to kill herself?

    A prank phone call, that all she did was punch it through, was enough for her to kill herself?

    Am I missing something?

    the woman's life has probably been a living hell since that call.

    The story was a bit confusing but I think the nurse divulged a lot of highly personal information about Kate during the call. There was talk about how she likes to “freshen up”.

    Living hell or not, there's something else going on if one chooses to kill themselves. This is sad, yes. But it seems pretty rare that a suicide is preceded by no issues whatsoever.

    of course, it doesn't make the story any less tragic though. Hope the djs in australia got a good laugh out of that. I'm guessing they'll soon be looking for work.

    I feel sorry about her killing herself but I am not sure what what so traumatic about the prank? Yes I understand revealing stuff about yourself is bad but people have done far worse on Facebook. Look at some of the stuff out there on Youtube, FB, etc. It gets far worse. She had other issues at play. Just like the football player. Getting in an argument doesn't make one shoot their baby mama 9 times. Something was wrong long before that and I suspect other things were at play here.

    Don't get me wrong. I feel terrible for her family, friends, etc however right now there are some DJ's that are getting vilified and I am sure their original intent wasn't to have somebody kill themself.

    Have not heard the call, from what I hear though they didn't really target the nurse or give her a hard time, she's copped a bit of flack in the general media for putting the call through.
    A little zen....... Headed your way.......

    This is normal DJ type stuff. Its a shame that it turned this traic, I dont blame the DJ's for this womans death. Had she not killed herself this would already be a non story.
    I did read that the dj's have stepped down.

    but this is what as to be understood when people pull these pranks...........they are dealing with a complete unknown situation....they have no idea how the person on the other end of the "joke" is affected once they move on.

    the joke may be over for the jokester, but it just may be beginning for the person on the receiving end


    I don't know what the laws are in the UK, but here any DJ playing this joke would know that (with HIPPA) if they are successful, someone's livelihood may be on the line
