Jacintha Saldanha, the receptionist and nurse who put prank callers from an Australian radio station through to Kate Middleton’s personal nurse while the duchess was hospitalized earlier this week, has been found dead in a London park from a suspected suicide.
The prank callers were reportedly told confidential information about Kate’s pregnancy. Middleton is reportedly less than 12 weeks and was hospitalized with hyperemesis gravidarum, a severe form of morning sickness.
Saldanha, a mother of two, was found dead in a park near King Edward VII Hospital this morning.
The hospital, who released a statement calling her a “a first class nurse,” was reportedly not planning to discipline Saldanha over the mistake. I wouldn’t be surprised, however, if the UK media had been hounding her after the incident.
How terribly sad. I hope those radio DJs feel like shitheads.
