http://abcnews.go.com/International/nurse-hoaxed-queens-call-found-dead/story?id=17903539#.UMIVkpPjmdJ

The hospital receptionist who was hoaxed by a prank call from a DJ claiming to be the queen asking about Kate Middleton has been found dead.

"It is with very deep sadness that we confirm the tragic death of a member of our nursing staff," the hospital said in a statement released today.

The nurse was identified as Jacintha Saldanha. The hospital said that Saldanha worked at the hospital for more than four years. They called her an "first-class nurse" and "a well-respected and popular member of the staff."


Sad really.

On one hand, yes she made a mistake putting the call through. On the other hand, would you really want to be the one that tells the Queen "no, I will not put you through to Kate?"

She made her choice to commit suicide, but I hope those DJs realize they directly contributed to this.

Ugh, that is sad.

Anytime I see an obit without cause listed or hinted at or "died suddenly" I read as suicide.

Very sad, indeed. Peace unto her friends and family.

I'm going to go against the grain and say, why the fuck do I care? She chose to take her own life (if that is indeed true). Nuff said.

She got pranked and couldn't handle it. I don't want someone with that thin of skin on my nursing staff. As a matter of fact, I don't want someone thin skinned like that coming near my health in any way.

She leaked one of the "biggest" news stories in England. She possibly committed a major crime in doing so.

Australian DJ's pranked the hospital where Dutchess Kate was at for acute mourning sickness. They pretended to be the Queen to get information. The nurses put them through and told her she was stable and all that jazz. Turns out to be a hoax, nurse is upset, kills herself. all you had to do was click the link in the first post

These radio DJ's are going to be villanized, but it's not their fault this lady had mental issues. People get pranked everyday on radio shows and don't commit suicide. It's a sad situation for her family and friends, but the blame lies with her and her alone if everything is being reported accurately.

I see what you're saying and agree with it. The nurse made her choice. However, if it were me that made the prank call, I would feel like shit.
