Nurse Blamed DJ's For Suicide

4-28-13

The Herald Sun is reporting that nurse Jacintha Saldanha committed suicide because of the hoax call made to the hospital by Mel Greig and Michael Christian. The article says Saldanha left a note blaming Greg and Christian and asked her bosses to get the DJ's to pay her mortgage. "I am truly sorry. Thank you for all your support. I hold Radio Australians Mel Greig and Michael Christian responsible for this act. Please make them pay my mortgage. I am sorry. Jacintha."

Greg and Christian called the hospital pretending to be members of the royal family, got through to where Kate Middleton was being treated, and played the call on their show. Saldanha put the call through. She was found dead three days later. 2Day FM owner Southern Cross has paid $500,000 into a trust fund for Ms Saldhanha’s family including her two children Junal, 17, and 14-year-old Lisha.

The really sad thing here ......... Is that two children have lost their mother. And that because of her depression, she thought ... she and her children would be better off if she were not alive. Sad indeed.
