Mel Greig and Michael Christian, the two DJs at the centre of the Kate Middleton prank-call controversy, have died in apparently unrelated accidents while undergoing surgery at the same hospital in Sydney.
Greig, 30, who had been admitted to St.Vincent's Hospital to have a benign mole removed, was tragically decapitated during the procedure when a minor earth tremor caused the surgeon's machete to slip, causing Ms Grieg's head to be sliced from her shoulders. Christian, 32, had been admitted earlier that day with mild stomach pains. He had been under anaesthetic when he was tragically shot 13 times in the head with a shotgun and then set on fire, apparently during a brief powercut.
Staff at the hospital expressed their sadness at the events. Dr Aboriginal-Genocide, one of the surgeons present at Ms Grieg's death said 'we are all feeling awful here - as awful as the family of our poor, departed colleague Jacintha Saldanha who would still be smiling, doing her job and looking forward to a full life ahead of her if it weren't for this pair of cunts.'
Management at 2DayFM were unavailable for comment. A call to the station from an anonymous caller warning anyone who worked there 'not to get sick anytime soon' was reported to police but, as yet, there are no reports of any suicides.
