Jacintha Saldhina Suicide Children

Jacintha Saldanha’s tragic alleged suicide has left her two kids, Lisha, 14, and Junal, 16, completely devastated and in ‘shock.’ Her youngest daughter honored their mom, and spoke out about their terrible loss on Facebook.

Just one day after nurse Jacintha Saldanha allegedly committed suicide on Dec. 7 following the on-air prank phone call by Australian radio hosts Mel Greig and Michael Christian, her heartbroken family expressed their grief on Facebook — especially her only daughter.

“I miss you, I loveeee you,” Lisha, 14, wrote on her Facebook page on Dec. 8. Jacintha’s husband Benedict Barboza, 49, also shared his thoughts on their terrible loss.

“I am devastated with the tragic loss of my beloved wife Jacintha in tragic circumstances,” he wrote on his Facebook page.

They and her son Junal, 16, are said to be “shocked and inconsolable,” according to sources close to the family.

The Prank Call Backstory

The DJs spoke to Kate’s private nurse at King Edward VII Hospital and were given actual information on Kate’s hyperemesis gravidarum condition.

During the phone call, you can hear DJ Mel posing as Queen Elizabeth II saying, “Hello, I’m just looking after my granddaughter, Kate. I wanted to see how her little tummy bug is going.”

It’s unclear exactly what the nurse told Mel, but she says the nurse, “was giving us real information,” that left her in shock.

“We were very surprised that our call was put through,” Mel is quoted as saying. “We thought we’d be hung up on as soon as they heard our terrible accents.”

Prince William & Kate Middleton Release Statement on Nurse’s Suicide

St. James’s Palace also released a statement on the nurse’s suicide, saying, “The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are deeply saddened to learn of the death of Jacintha Saldanha. Their Royal Highnesses were looked after so wonderfully well at all times by everybody at King Edward VII Hospital, and their thoughts and prayers are with Jacintha Saldanha’s family, friends and colleagues at this very sad time.”

Such a tragedy. Our thoughts are also with Jacintha’s family during this difficult time.

What do YOU think of Jacintha’s family speaking out HollyMoms?

I dont think that when the DJ’s did that prank that anything like this would happen. It wasn’t a smart thing to do although I can’t say I blame them for her suicide. She had to have something going on beside that. Who could know anyone would do something like that?

Agreed…many of us have laughed at the efforts of on-air entertainers to spoof people at the other end of a phone line. Mrs. Saldanha showed trust and poise during a particularly stressful moment in her obviously stressful role with the hospital. Her family should be proud of the difference she clearly made in many lives. As with her amazing family, Ms. Greig and Mr. Christian, too, will have to show that same trust and poise to accept the grace to carry on. A typical on-air situation got out of hand. They all have my prayers today.
