Melbourne: British nurse Jacintha Saldanha`s family has expressed shock over comments made by Southern Cross Media`s boss over her death and has demanded and apology.

The chairman Max Moore-Wilton has reportedly told shareholders at the company`s AGM that while hoaxes like the royal radio prank and other incidents involving on-air talent were unfortunate, "shit happens", reported.

The British nurse, who was found dead last December after taking the initial ` 2Day FM radio` prank call to her nurses station at King Edward VII hospital where the Duchess of Cambridge was hospitalized, had reportedly left a suicide note blaming the prank for her death.

She had forwarded the call made by the DJs, who posed as the Queen and Prince Charles, to the Duchess`s ward where another nurse spoke openly about her morning sickness condition believing the call to be from the Royal Family .

A spokesman for the deceased nurse`s family said that the comment about the "tragic incident" was an insult to the memory of a loving mother and wife and demanded an apology from Moore-Wilton.
