Royal hoax leads to nurse's death

Jacintha Saldanha, a nurse at King Edward VII hospital in London, committed suicide after taking a hoax call from Australian DJs about the pregnant Duchess of Cambridge. The Australian radio station behind the prank call said it will donate its advertising revenue
