Kate Middleton Hospital Prank
First Photo of Nurse
Who Killed Herself
Finally putting a face to name, the first photo of the nurse from Kate Middleton’s hospital who committed suicide hours after two Australian DJ’s pranked her has just been released.
Scotland Yard sent out the haunting snap-shot of Jacintha Saldanha — the nurse on-call at King Edward VII Hospital in London — who was duped by two radio DJs pretending to be the Queen of England and Prince Charles.
According to Scotland Yard, the 46-year-old Saldanha was pronounced dead on scene Friday and her death is currently listed as “unexplained.” An autopsy will be held next week.
Saldanha’s family issued a statement. saying, “We are deeply saddened by the loss of our beloved Jacintha. We would ask that the media respect out privacy at this difficult time.”
The Australian radio station behind the phony phone call also issued a statement Saturday, stating it did nothing wrong and there was no way to have foreseen the tragic outcome.
As TMZ previously reported, the two DJ’s behind the phone call have since suspended themselves from the airwaves.
