Nurse Jacintha Saldanha Involved 'In Previous Suicide' Attempt

Jacintha Saldanha, the nurse who committed suicide after the Duchess of Cambridge radio DJ prank, was admitted to the hospital earlier this year for a possible suicide attempt, reports The Telegraph.

Saldanha, 46, was treated in intensive care at a hospital in Mangalore, India in January 2012, after reportedly falling from a building.

Her brother spoke of the fall saying, "Jacintha never wanted the family to know of the incident and we played a behind-the-scene role."

In early December, the 2DayFM DJs called the London hospital where a pregnant Kate Middleton was convalescing from acute morning sickness and posed as the Queen and Prince Charles.

Jacintha Saldanha, a 46-year-old mother of two, was the nurse who put the call through to  Kate's nurse. Saldanha committed suicide three days later, with her body found near King Edward VII Hospital.
