Rough Cut (no reporter narration) The grieving family of nurse Jacintha Saldanha visited the British parliament offices at Westminster on Monday (December 10) to thank public for their support in the tragedy. The 46-year-old nurse was found dead in staff accommodation near London's King Edward VII hospital on Friday (December 7) after putting a hoax call from an Australian radio station through to a colleague, who unwittingly disclosed details of Duchess of Cambridge's morning sickness to the presenters. Saldanha left behind two children and husband Ben Barboza. Barboza was hosted by Labour MP Keith Vaz in Westminster late on Monday afternoon. The family arrived clutching flowers and a photo of Saldanha and thanked the public in a statement read out by Vaz. "They (Jacintha Saldanha's family) just want me to say that they are extremely grateful to the public here in the United Kingdom and throughout the world, who have sent their message of condolences and support following the death of Jacintha - a loving mother and a loving wife. This is a close family. They are devastated by what has happened. They miss her every moment of every day and they are really grateful for the support of the British public and to the public overseas for their messages of support and kindness," said Vaz. The hospital at which Saldanha worked told the BBC it had not disciplined her for taking the prank call. Police said a post-mortem examination would be conducted on Tuesday (December 11). The two Australian radio announcers who made a prank call broke a three-day silence on Monday to speak of their distress at the apparent suicide of the nurse who took their call. The 2DayFM Sydney-based announcers, Mel Greig and Michael Christian, said the tragedy had left them "shattered, gutted, heartbroken". Greig and fellow presenter and prank mastermind Christian have been in hiding since Saldanha's death and the subsequent social media outrage at their prank.
