Memorial Services Held for Nurse Duped by DJs in Royal Prank Call

Memorial services were held Friday in Britain and Thursday in India for Jacintha Saldanha, the nurse duped by two Australian radio show hosts into putting through a prank call to the hospital ward of the pregnant Duchess of Cambridge, NBC News reported. A mass was set to be held at London's Westminster Cathedral Saturday, NBC partner ITV News reported. The service will be offered "for the repose of the soul of Jacintha and her grieving family," a spokesman for the Cathedral told ITV. A private memorial service was held Friday at the King Edward VII Hospital, where Saldanha worked, and another at St Teresa's Church in Bristol, where the nurse's family lived. Saldanha, 46, was found hanging by a scarf from a wardrobe by a colleague and a member of security staff at King Edward VII's Hospital on Friday, Dec. 7.
