Who’s to Blame: The Jacintha Saldanha Case

The highly publicized hospitalization of Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, became full blown news when a nurse from the hospital that she was admitted was found dead. Considering that any information that you can get from the royal family’s hospitalization will be much read by everyone so a prank call has been made. Kate was admitted due to severe morning sickness and everyone would want to know her condition and any first hand information is great news. 

Then a few days after her admission at King Edward VII Hospital, Australian DJ’s made a prank call impersonating as Queen Elizabeth and Prince Phillip and ask for Kate’s condition. And when the call became sensationalized and made worldwide news, the nurse who transferred the call to the room of Kate Middleton was found dead the following day apparently taking her own life. Initial reports from authorities pointed out no foul play as there were three suicide letters that nurse Jacintha Saldanha left. 

The situation eventually captured the attention of everyone and went to social media to express their outrage of what the Australian DJ’s have done. That on the other hand has also created different stands and that the DJ’s should not be blamed of what has happened to Jacintha Saldanha.
