A female nurse who took a prank call at the London hospital that treated Prince William’s pregnant wife Kate for morning sickness has been found dead, the hospital said on Friday.
The death, which police said they were treating as unexplained, comes days after the King Edward VII hospital apologised after falling for the call from an Australian radio station and relaying details about the Duchess of Cambridge’s condition.

"A hospital nurse caring for the Duchess of Cambridge, who was duped by two DJs pretending to be the Queen and Prince Charles, is understood to have committed suicide.

Jacintha Saldanha, who has worked at the hospital for four years, was found at an address near the hospital".

Thing is all she did was transfer the call she did not give out any personal details

The DJ's should be held accountable for her killing herself

This is horrible news. I can only assume she killed herself out of guilt or pressure or something :( So, so sad :( I should imagine those DJ's bitterly regret the idea to do that prank call now :(

I don't know if they should be "held accountable", but certainly they will be vilified for this. Sometimes radio DJs do some really terrible things for 'shock value ratings'.

No they shouldn't.

It was a pretty dick move though. I think a lot of us will be writing to the standards board about it >.>

Why? Suicide seems a bit extreme for such a trivial incident.

The DJs said themselves they never thought that that the call would be taken seriously.
They will probably lose their jobs.

I found the call amusing it made me laugh.
Im not laughing now though.

Im sure William and Kate also found it amusing, its a shame they hadn't said so earlier.
Im not blaming them though.

Always found it odd people thought it was a fun idea to prank phone call a sick person in hospital.

Well they say working in a Hospital is a hard job, guess this was the push over the edge.
