Nurse found dead after prank call on Catherine

[Updated at 11:29 a.m. ET] 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.

The nurse "was recently the victim of a hoax call," King Edward VII Hospital said in a media statement.

The DJs impersonated Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Charles in the prank call, in which some details of the Duchess of Cambridge's condition and care were given.

The nurse who died was the person who first took the hoax call and transferred it through to Catherine's ward, the hospital said.

    BTW, why was a hospital stay required? To get an overnight in the US, you better have had brain or heart surgery. Can't they afford a doctor to drive out to the castle? Administer the I-V fluids and Rolaids there next time please....and get caller ID on your phones, ok?
