When Pranks Go Horribly Wrong…

Chalk another one up to the public hating the mainstream media again. ?This radio prank went horribly wrong.

A receptionist at the private hospital which treated the Duchess of Cambridge has died in a suspected suicide ? two days after being duped by an amateurish hoax from an Australian radio station.

The exact cause of death remained unclear. However, one source indicated that the woman appeared to have killed herself.

Two days earlier the receptionist took a phone call from giggling DJs Mel Greig and Michael Christian pretending to be the Queen and Prince Charles.

The Australian station and presenters advertised the stunt worldwide and today Christian was continuing to boast about the prank ‘making international headlines’ on Twitter.
