Tragedy As Receptionist Who Connected Kate Middleton Prank Callers Commits Suicide
by Tom Sykes Dec 7, 2012 9:37 AM EST

Nurse was found yards away from the hospital.

The prank phone call saga in which two Australian DJs impersonated the queen and got connected to a nurse looking after Kate Middleton took a tragic turn today after the nurse who was working on reception and put the call through committed suicide. She was found shortly after 9 a.m.

The hospital issued a statement today, saying: "With very deep sadness, the death is confirmed of a member of our nursing staff. Jasinther Saldana has worked at the hospital for four years. She was very much liked by all staff.

"We can confirm that Jasinther was recently the victim of a hoax call to the hospital. The hospital had been supporting her through this difficult time. Jasinther was a first class nurse who cared diligently for hundreds of patients and will be greatly missed."

Her husband and two children have been informed of her death.
