The owners of an Australian radio station at the centre of the British royal prank call scandal Sunday said the tragic death of a nurse was “unforeseeable” and vowed to review its broadcasting processes.

The mother-of-two Jacintha Saldanha, 46, is believed to have taken her own life after being duped by two 2Day FM presenters seeking news on the pregnancy of Prince William’s wife Kate.

Executives at Southern Cross Austereo, owners of 2Day FM, held an emergency meeting to consider a letter from Lord Simon Glenarthur, chairman of London’s King Edward VII’s Hospital, protesting the “appalling” hoax.

In his letter, Glenarthur urged the company to ensure that such calls never happen again.

“It is too early to know the full details leading to this tragic event and we are anxious to review the results of any investigation that may be made available to us or made public,” Southern Cross Austereo’s reply said.
