Prince Charles Jokes about DEADLY Prank Call: "How do you know I'm not a radio station?" LISTEN: The DEADLY Prank Call That Causes Kate Nurse To Commit Suicide - Dead of Jacintha Saldanha The nurse who took a prank phone call at the Duchess of Cambridge's hospital has been found dead in a suspected suicide. Jacintha Saldanha took the call from two Australian radio presenters on Tuesday morning and, believing she was speaking with the Queen, passed them on to a colleague who revealed private information about the Duchess' condition. Ms Saldanha's unconscious body was found just yards from the King Edward VII Hospital earlier this morning. An ambulance was called and paramedics made desperate efforts to revive her but she was pronounced dead at the scene. The hospital said in a statement: ""We can confirm the tragic death of a member of our nursing staff, Jacintha Saldanha. "Jacintha has worked at the King Edward VII Hospital for more than four years. She was an excellent nurse and a well-respected and popular member of staff with all her colleagues. "We can confirm that Jacintha was recently the victim of a hoax call to the hospital. The hospital has been supporting her at this difficult time." Hospital chief executive John Lofthouse said: "Our thoughts and deepest sympathies at this time are with her family and friends. Everyone is shocked by the loss of a much-loved and valued colleague." Ms Saldanha is understood to be the first person heard during the call from two presenters at the Australian radio station 2Day FM. She transferred the hoaxers to a second nurse in the hospital, who gave them a detailed update on the Duchess' condition. The Duchess was released from hospital yesterday but the call, which has since been shared across the internet, has provoked global outrage. Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge were reported to be angry at the intrusion, although Prince Charles yesterday made light of the situation, asking reporters "how do you know I'm not a radio station". The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge today released a statement saying they are "deeply saddened" to learn of Ms Saldanha's death. The statement said: "Their Royal Highnesses were looked after so wonderfully well at all times by everybody at King Edward VII Hospital, and their thoughts and prayers are with Jacintha Saldanha's family, friends and colleagues at this very sad time." Scotland Yard said: "Police were called at about 9.35am on Friday December 7 to reports of a woman found unconscious at an address in Weymouth Street, W1. "The London Ambulance service attended and the woman was pronounced dead at the scene. Inquiries are continuing to establish the circumstances of the incident...The death is being treated as unexplained." Sources say Ms Saldanha's death is not being treated as suspicious. During the call Ms Saldanha answered the phone saying: "Hello, good morning, King Edward VII Hospital." 2Day FM presenter, Mel Greig, who was impersonating the Queen replied: "Oh, hello there. Could I please speak to Kate please, my granddaughter?" The woman answered: "Oh yes, just hold on ma'am." The two hoaxers, Greig and Michael Christian, were put through to a second nurse who told them: "She's sleeping at the moment and she has had an uneventful night. She's been given some fluids, she's stable at the moment." The Sydney-based radio station later apologised for the prank and is expected to release a statement about Ms Saldanha's death later today. In their initial apology the two presenters said: "We were very surprised that our call was put through. We thought we'd be hung up on as soon as they heard our terrible accents." They went on: "We're very sorry if we've caused any issues and we're glad to hear that Kate is doing well." After the incident earlier this week John Lofthouse, chief executive at the King Edward VII Hospital, said: "This was a foolish prank call that we all deplore. We take patient confidentiality extremely seriously and we are now reviewing our telephone protocols." No-one at the hospital was available for comment this morning.
