Jacintha-SaldanhaTRAGIC nurse Jacintha Saldanha, who is believed to have taken her own life after falling victim to a hoax call from an Australian radio station 2Day FM, was found hanged in her staff housing it was reported today.

Mother-of-two Jacintha Saldanha, 46, left a note for her family, the Daily Mail claimed.

She had not told her husband or children that she was involved in the incident, meaning the letter may provide their only clue to what prompted the respected nurse to take such a drastic and tragic step.

British Prime Minister David Cameron said today that ‘many lessons’ must be learned from the tragedy.

He said: “She clearly loved her job, loved her work, cared deeply about the health of her patients and what has happened is a complete tragedy. There will be many lessons that need to be learned.”

A post-mortem examination was held yesterday on the body of Mrs Saldanha, who was the first unwitting member of staff at the King Edward VII Hospital in London, where the Duchess of Cambridge was being treated for acute morning sickness, to take the call made by two Australian DJs pretending to be the Queen and Prince Charles.

The results of the post-mortem examination are not yet known.
