Wise words.

Prank calls (whether we like them or not) are a common thing. How could have anyone forseen this tragic outcome? Radiostations do this kind of pranks every morning around the globe. Its very unfortunate if this prank call was the last drop that spilled this person's meantal health. Besides we don't really know what caused it. She could have had self-destructive thoughs way before that sad morning. Many number of things could have set her on this dark path.

These hosts as immature as they were couldn't have imagined their prank ending this way. Should they take responssibility? Its defiently tasteless and wrong to trick nurses this way. I think most people want their medical info stay condifental, but in my opinion they didn't cause this person's death. The line has to be drawn somewhere.
