Today the story turned tragic as the nurse who patched the DJs through was found dead.According to CNN, it is suspected she committed suicide. Her coworkers describe her as "excellent" and respected.
Her name has been released as Jacintha Saldanha. London police were notified today, Friday, at about 1:35 a.m. Pacific Time that she was found dead.
The DJs, Mel Greig and Michael Christian, have apologized for the prank, saying they didn't think it would work.
