Prank Call May be Responsible For Nurse Death

There is a saying ‘What is joke to you is death to me’.  This saying was illustrated recently when a London-based nurse committed suicide after DJs pulled off a royal hospital prank call.

The DJs, posing as Queen Elizabeth and Prince Charles called the hospital, tricking nurses into divulging information about Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge’s pregnancy.  A recording of the call was posted on the internet and played on television and radio stations around the world.  The humiliation caused by this may have driven Nurse Jacintha Saldanha to commit suicide.

It was a very selfish and irresponsible act on the path of these two Australian DJs to carry out this prank without giving any thought or consideration of how it would affect the people involved.  They were interested in only one thing and that was to make the news and be in the spotlight, but at what cost?

As a result of their actions a woman is dead; two children have lost a mother, a man has lost his partner and a family is left in mourning.  DJs you made the news but I have one question for you, was it worth it?
