I like a good prank but man, that is sad! On CNN.com and MSNBC.com as Breaking News.

I read about this. It's soooo sad. I wonder if other things were going on and this just pushed her over the edge.

She probably caught so much heat from hospital administration and co-workers, along with the press the story was getting. It probably got to be too much for her. I wonder if the DJs or even the radio station will be held accountable in any way?

Absolutely unforgiveable stunt. I doubt if any criminal charges could be brought against the radio station and/or the two talk show hosts. Especially because it would be difficult to reach half away around the world to get at them. But I would think that her family might be able to go to Australia and file a suit in civil court......or whatever they call them in their justice system. When I read the story I immediately thought of the similarity to stories of the deadly effects of bullying that goes on with teenagers.
At all the hospitals I've had anything to do with here in the U.S. they would have been turned down flat when they started seeking information.

It has been reported that the DJs have been pulled off the air and their show has been taken off, at least temporarily. They have also lost lots of their advertisers for their radio show. The police in England are reported to state they may want to talk to those two DJs as well.
Those DJs are really distraught about the events that have resulted because of their prank. The royal family is directly affected but if they want they could jump really deep into the hospital's pocket as well as the radio station's and the company that owns the radio station.
Congratulations! You earned the Liz badge!
