Hospital receptionist duped by Kate prank reportedly commits suicide12/7/2012
The hospital receptionist who was fooled by two Australian DJs into believing she was talking to Queen Elizabeth and patched the call through to Kate Middleton’s nurse has been found dead in a suspected suicide. The woman, who initially took the call from 2Day FM DJs Mel Greig and Michael Christian, was discovered in a residence close to the King Edward VII Hospital on Friday morning. The DJs received worldwide attention after successfully obtaining details from another member of staff on the condition of Middleton, who was recovering at the hospital from severe morning sickness. The hospital has issued a statement identifying the deceased worker as Jacintha Saldanha and confirming that Saldanha was "the victim of a hoax call." [Source]
