The woman who took the call has spontaneously died, suspected suicide. Maybe an MI5 cover-up for disturbing the Royal Family? (jk) Who knows.

That must of been very awkward on the air.
From what I've seen, after the nurse took the call and found out later they were lying, she committed suicide at her house. She was a mother of 2? children.

Yeah, and later the DJs apologized for the prank calls that made her nurse suicide. Never seen anything like that before.
Wow, didn't know about this honestly but the DJ's shouldn't have done a prank call this serious I mean we have all done prank call's before but you have to know when you've crossed the line.

But yeah really interesting story.


I really don't think the prank call crossed the line. I've heard much worse ones before. I also don't think the prank call is the initial thing that made the nurse decide to do suicide. I think she was already debating it before hand, and this just helped trigger it. She was probably already mentally sick or clinically depressed.

I honestly think the whole royalty thing is pretty ridiculous...

I don't get it... Why did she commit suicide? Mild embarrassment? I cannot see any reason that prank call would lead to suicide.

I disagree. What they did was hilarious and didn't hurt anyone. People need to learn to take a joke.

Relevant.
I'm in agreement that this is a "straw that broke the camel's back" thing and that the DJs really aren't at much fault at all.

However.

Anyone who blames the suicide victim herself is a disgusting monster. There's no better way to put it. If you MUST blame anyone, look through her history and find out what trauma caused her depression. No suicide victim, EVER, is at fault for their suicide, and as far as victim blaming goes, blaming suicide victims is probably one of the worst imaginable, alongside blaming rape and murder victims.

Of course the victim is never at fault, the person to blame is the perpetrator...

...

Something is wrong here. Anyway, it is her (the nurse's) fault for following through the decision to kill herself, even if she was bullied into the thought. Was it wrong what the DJs did? yes, but they didn't kill her.

Ugh, I hate suicide discussions, there is always more than meets the eyes. No offense to anyone's opinions.

I wonder what a HFD opcode would do in ASM...
You don't quite understand depression, then.

Mental conditions are diseases just as much as anything caused by a bacteria or virus. When a disease kills someone, do you blame the person who died, or the disease itself?


Any "fault" for her death lies in her depression, or more abstractly whatever thing(s) caused it.
I was shocked when I first heard it but yeah, it doesn't seem that far fetched if you consider it the final straw and out of horrible luck they just happened to prank the wrong person. Apart from all the public embarrassment she must've suffered, there's not much known about what she had to deal with from hospital management or colleagues. What info I did see of her implied that she was very nervous and self conscious so this must've been a massive blow to her psychologically.

The radio hosts are taking an absolute beating over this but while I don't have much sympathy for them, especially with how they acted after the prank was aired, most of the blame really should be directed at the station's legal team who gave the green light for the prank to be aired. They "tried" to contact the hospital supposedly and failed but they still went ahead and aired the conversation despite not having proper consent to do so. Almost every prank that get's aired here is only aired with the consent of the target but 2Day FM probably just couldn't resist the publicity they'd score from this and went ahead anyway.

Not that I support pranking a hospital for condifential patient info either way, but if they did atleast follow through with contacting the nurse targeted, this almost certainly wouldn't have happened.
