(SOUNDBITE) (English) SOUTHERN CROSS AUSTEREO CEO RHYS HOLLERAN SAYING: "Southern Cross Austereo's committed to working with authorities in any investigation into this tragedy. Our primary concern at this time is for the family of nurse Saldanha. This is a tragic event that could not of been reasonably foreseen and we're deeply saddened by it." He said the two DJs who pretended to be Queen Elizabeth and Prince Charles, will not be returning to their show till further notice. The Premier of New South Wales mirrored CEO Rhys Holleran's sentiments. (SOUNDBITE) (English) PREMIER OF NEW SOUTH WALES, BARRY O'FARRELL SAYING: "I don't imagine in any way that those who were engaged in the typical FM radio stunt ever thought it would lead to this. So, I think there are some people today who are suffering, not just the family of the nurses, but those who in some way were involved with what appears to have been the trigger for this tragedy. But let's not make light of it and lets leave the federal government to resolve the regulatory matters." Local media reported the DJs are staying at a hotel in Sydney. Australians were shocked by the tragic turn of events. (SOUNDBITE) (English) VERA POSTIN, SYDNEY RESIDENT SAYING: "Well, she did breach privacy laws so she was guilty in that sense, but to kill herself was probably a bit over the top, I think. No, that's not very good at all. The DJs should be quite horrified by that." The radio station launched its stunt in the wake of a frenzy of media attention in Britain and worldwide after officials announced Kate was pregnant with a future British king or queen.
