Cambodia, Sleeping drunk run over by train


Recommended Posts

A train ran over a drunk man who was sleeping on the tracks, killing him instantly, in Kandal province’s Kandal Stung district yesterday. Tbeng commune police chief Puth Sokunthea said the incident happened in the early hours of the morning and the man had been sleeping on the tracks after drinking rice wine at a nearby Buddhist ceremony.

“It happened about 2am. The train was on its way from Phnom to Kampong Som,” Mr. Sokunthea said. “I don’t know what the train was carrying because it was late at night. No one knew the train killed the man, the body was only discovered in the morning.

“He was in town to attend a Buddhist ceremony for his mother in their hometown and he was drinking some wine with his friends. While drunk, he sat on the train tracks to rest and fell asleep,” he added. The victim was identified as 35-year-old Ly Sokchea from Bakou commune.
