Hanging is such a horrible way to commit suicide... My friends husband offed himself like that, or tried to anyway. his wife found him and  called 911.  He ended up in the hospital brain dead and on life support.  

His family was at his bedside the whole time he was on life support, he had garrote marks around his neck and they were so red like an accusation of blame.  I'll never forget it.

I would just take some pills, drink a lot of tequila, then start swimming in the ocean.  Hopefully some kind hearted Great White will help speed things up by munching on my head.  Leave no way to survive and be a brain dead burden on my family.

I'm really sorry Jacintha felt bad enough to hang herself.  I hope no one I know ever feels that way.  :(

The DJ's are not to blame. This woman obviously had issues before this.

In all likelihood she did have other issues going on that played a role in what she decided to do. The DJ's aren't to blame for that, but it does appear as though the prank they pulled on her may have been what triggered her act upon suicidal thoughts she had previously been struggling with.

If you're going to kill yourself over something like a harmless radio joke, you've already been teetering on the edge.

She may have been "teetering on the edge," but the joke was obviously not harmless. The fact that it apparently sent her "over the edge" is a clear indication of how harmful the joke actually was.

It's this belief that "harmless jokes" and other kinds of negative actions towards people are no big deal that causes a lot of people so much distraught about their life to begin with (especially young children and teenagers, but it applies to adults as well).

I've had the misfortune of knowing 6 people who've killed themselves. Trust me, if it wasn't this to set her off it would've been something else.

That is an awfully gaudy assumption for you to make about this person (or anyone else who has committed suicide - whether you knew them or not).

The DJ's are not responsible for the actions this woman chose to take. Ultimatley the only person responsible for killing themselves is the person who decided to do so. That said, people should be more aware of how the "harmless" actions they take against others could possibly affect the targeted individual.

Kate royal hoax: Australian watchdog launches inquiry


Quote

The Australian media watchdog has launched a formal inquiry into the hoax call to the London hospital where the Duchess of Cambridge was being treated.
Nurse Jacintha Saldanha was found dead on Friday, three days after taking the call from an Australian radio station.
The Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) will focus on the 2DayFM licence holder and not directly on the presenters who made the call.

No, no pre-existing idiosyncratic response there.  It is a matter of the body not being able to flush the toxins out.  We learned this in biology in highschhol here in BC.  Also, a nurse called into the show to warn them that it was dangerous and someone could severly sick or die.  So, yeah, they were liable.
Well ,I meant it was idiosyncratic in that,everyone in the contest was doing what she did.
Taking into account,size,weight ,and metabolism ,anyone can die in such a situation ,but she was the only one that did.
She had to have been approximately the same size as someone else in the contest ,but only she had the issue.
It's an extremely dumb type of competition if you ask me .

ACMA on hearing they'e investigating 2DayFM "Ohh good grief, not them again."

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

She hung herself with a scarf,and left three suicide notes,one of which noted her despair at how badly the hospital treated her because of the incident .

But of course the hospital said they did not reprimand her.  I wonder how the other nurse is doing.  Anyone news have news on her?

Hi Simbi,

The British press haven't released the contents of the suicide notes over here. I wondered if maybe the hospital had given her a hard time... is this in the American news Simbi?

Thanks Simbi for the links. I don't know if they will ever release the message in the suicide notes to the press over here in the UK. It makes me think things must of been totally unbearable for this nurse and that she may have been under immense pressure.She was Roman Catholic and it goes against the grain being Catholic to commit suicide. Very sad situation for all.

Just as I thought all along.  The hospital administration is a disgrace, first they try to publically claim they provided her with all their support, then they go on a public tirade against the DJs, including a letter from them holding the DJs station responsible for the nurse's suicide and finally it turns out the suicide note from the nurse directly blames the hospital's treatment of her for her act.

Not only has that now caused the nurse's suicide it has villified to DJs (albeit dumb but they sure as heck don't deserve the death threats or the public condemnation as the cause of the suicide) and they have the bleeding nerve to want an explanation as though they themselves (the hospital) are completely innocent of any wrong doing.

The worst part of it all is they were setting the whole thing about to absolve themselves of responsibility and legal liability - covering their butts for their own self serving purposes.

I am more than a little outraged right now.

"I warn you, whoever you are, oh you who wish to probe the arcanes of nature, if you do not find within yourself that which you seek, neither shall you find it outside.
If you ignore the excellencies of your own house, how do you intend to find other excellencies?
In you is hidden the treasure of treasures, Oh man, know thyself and you shall know the Universe and the Gods."
