Jacintha Saldanha suicide note: Nurse pranked by 2Day FM left note for family

Jacintha Saldanha, the London nurse who apparently committed suicide after being fooled by a prank call reportedly left a suicide note to her family, though the contents have not been made public.

Saldanha was found dead on Friday after a hoax phone call made by two Australian deejays, where she enabled details about mother-to-be Kate Middleton's hospital stay to be revealed. According to The UK's The Sun tabloid, Saldanha hanged herself in the nurses' quarters.

The Daily Mirror reports that the note was left for Saldanha's husband, Benedict Barboza, and their children Junal, 17, and Lisha, 14.

Her family visited the hospital where she worked on Monday and with British Parliament officials to demand answers about what happened.



Southern Cross Austereo, the company that owns the radio station 2Day FM that perpetrated the hoax, said Tuesday that it would bring back advertising to the station's airwaves after it was temporarily removed over the weekend. The station said it would donate the profits from advertising to a fund that will help Saldanha's family. Read more on the story at the Daily News ( http://nydn.us/ST1MAc .)
