Australian Radio Station Pays Jacintha Saldanha’s family $500,000 For Suicide
According to TMZ reports:
The Australian radio station responsible for the prank phone call that led to British nurse Jacintha Saldanha’s suicide … is planning to give her family about half a million bucks.
The corporation that owns 2DayFM announced it will donate all the station’s advertising profits for the rest of the year to a fund set up to support Saldanha’s 2 teenage children and husband.
The company estimates the total donation will be around 320,000 British pounds … or roughly $500,000.
2DayFM’s generous donation comes the day after it pulled the plug on the show that placed the prank call to Kate Middleton’s hospital room … with one of its DJs pretending to be Queen Elizabeth.
Saldanha transferred the call to Kate’s room, and was found dead near the hospital a few days later.
Don’t get it twisted, we’re sad for the family and feel terrible that they have lost their mother and wife. That said, this radio station is doing the most, $500,000?!? Sounds like guilt money/hush money. “Please don’t sue us, here’s this bread, thank you, have a nice life.”
What do you think, does the station OWE the family that money? Are they responsible for Jacintha Saldanha’s death?? Hit that comments section and drop ya 2 cents.
