Hospital Nurse Who Took DJs' Prank Call About Duchess Has Died

Apparently a tragic consequence from that prank call to King Edward VII Hospital earlier this week in which two Australian DJs impersonated Queen Elizabeth and Prince Charles in order to get information about the Duchess of Cambridge. The nurse on duty who took the call from the two has died. The hospital identified the nurse as Jacintha Saldanha, saying she was "an excellent nurse and well-respected and popular with all of her colleagues."  Early reports are treating the cause of death as unidentified but are suggesting suicide. The two DJs, Mel Greig and Michael Christian, have apologized for the call.
