London (CNN) -- A nurse at the hospital that was duped by a prank call from two Australian radio DJs concerning Prince William's pregnant wife, Catherine, has apparently committed suicide, the hospital confirmed Friday.

Not such a funny prank anymore, is it?

Thats what I was thinking Deenasdad. There is something missing from this story. While I get that the prank was stupid I can't fathom that being the sole reason she killed herself. I'd buy it being the "last straw" in an already stressful and depressing life though.

Do we know that she killed herself because of the prank?  Seems pretty unbalanced...and this was a nurse with people's lives in her care.

An intelligence operation?

It didn't think it was funny in the first place. And I thought all the "newscasters" (American, British, etc.) were all very juvenile for snickering about it.  Obviously she was a sensitive soul.  Can you imagine being made a laughing stock in front of the entire world?  Some people can handle that & some can't.  I hate shockjocks & their purile behavior!  All they are looking for are raitings & attention for themselves & they don't care that they might really hurt another person.  I'm really happy to hear that those two will not be returning to the air any time soon!

Either this is also a prank or that woman was mentally imbalanced beforehand.
