The nurse who took her life after unwittingly answering a hoax phone call about a pregnant Kate Middleton, tried to kill herself twice before, according to a new report.
The first attempt reportedly happened last December when the mother-of-two overdosed on pills while visiting family in India. She was rushed to the hospital and survived, and The Mail writes that her brother has confirmed that she tried to take her life again nine days later by jumping from a building and then spent several days in intensive care and was prescribed a course of powerful antidepressants for nine months.
Saldanha was found hanged with a scarf in her living quarters at the King Edward VII’s Hospital in London on December 7.
Three days earlier, she was the duty nurse who answered the prank call from Australian DJ’s Mel Greig and Michael Christian, and transferred it to a colleague.
That nurse revealed confidential medical information about the pregnant Duchess of Cambridge, who was being treated at the hospital for acute morning sickness.
The call was broadcast in Australia and made headlines around the world.
As RadarOnline reported, Saldanha left three suicide notes before taking her life.
She blamed the Aussie DJ’s in at least one of those notes.
And as we reported prosecutors are now considering filing criminal charges over the hoax call to the Duchess of Cambridge’s nurse.
