Kate Middleton becoming pregnant
The news was flashed every now and then after she herself declared the happy news of her becoming mother. Though her appearance did not quite look like she is pregnant but the couple accepted and declared the truth about their new family member. However in the midst of all these happy news strange yet sad news made the media stunned.
None of us were aware of a nurse named Jacintha Saldanha until yesterday. She was the attending nurse at the reception where Kate Middleton was admitted. The entire media was too excite to know about her wellbeing and did not care to carry on pranks to attract the mass.
The prank call
Following the similar trait, two radio jockeys from local FM station made a prank call in the morning. Kate was suffering from morning sickness for a few days and she was admitted in the king Edward VII hospital. Due to security reasons, the outsiders were not allowed to talk to the patients directly, that too when the patient is Kate Middleton. The nurse, Jacintha attended the call at the reception. It was supposedly Her Majesty the Queen and Prince Charles calling to enquire about the condition of Kate. They were the two DJs from “2Day FM”. DJ Mel Grieg and Michael Christian were carrying out this prank call. After introducing themselves as Prince Charles and Her Majesty the Queen, the responsible nurse transferred the call to the room where Kate was sleeping. They did not get the chance to speak to the patient directly but they had to speak to the attending nurse in that room first. All these incidents were quite in place but the tragedy happened after this when Jacintha was found dead. It is estimated that she died after receiving the prank call from the two DJs.
The unfortunate incident of Jacintha Saldanha
She was of almost 46 years of age at the time of her death. Some of them imagined this death as pure coincidence while some others considered it as a suicide. The CEO of the FM Company refuse to sack the two DJs for their prank. They have their own explanation. Around 5:30 in the morning, the nurse had attended the call from the DJs. It was a Wednesday morning. The exact reason and way of death is still a mystery to the doctors and the nurse. However, William and Kate have shown their condolence to the dead nurse.
The prank call was aired before the nurse could give the permission. This seems to have violated the rule. However, the FM Company had kept all its programmes on hold because of this incident. The two DJs seem to be very much sorry for what happened however, they are not to be charged without any proper jurisdiction. The death of the nurse is definitely a very sad part of the story in yesterday’s news. But it is seemed that nothing illegal is related to the prank call and the two DJs.
On Facebook, the husband of Jacintha posted : “I am devastated with the loss of my beloved Jacintha”
