A hospital worker, Jacintha Saldanha, committed suicide after two shock DJs pulled an awful prank on her. The DJs pretended to be the Queen and Prince Phillip and asked to speak to the Duchess. Saldanha was helping out at the reception desk and fell for the joke so she switched the line to a nurse who divulged personal, medical information to the shock DJs and was found dead earlier today. The nurse was found unconscious at the hospital she works for at about 9:30 this morning. The Austrian shock DJs have since quit and released a statement saying that they are sorry for the actions they took. Read what the Price and Duchess said below.
A representative for Prince William and Kate Middleton, who is in the hospital for severe morning sickness, said they were “deeply saddened” by Saldanha’s death, along with “Their thoughts and prayers are with Jacintha Saldanha’s family, friends and colleagues at this very sad time.” Saldanha was a mother of two children.
