American Man Attempts Suicide in Golden Sorya Mall

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

From the article I understood it as he might not be dead but is currently at the emergency room at Calmette. They think it's a suicide attempt but they don't confirm that he's dead. He also looks conscious in that picture to me. Despite all the blood..with his hand supporting his head.. the other hand firmly gripping his belt. Open bottle of water standing next to his body.. difficult to say though.

The article doesn't really say anything definite about what happened. It's all assumptions and guesswork.

Maybe they'll post an update when they find out more.

^ Yeah, waiting for more news....

Might ask some of my GSM buddies if they've heard anything. News on that block travels fast. Reliability is probably pretty low though.

That's good news. Again, based on Google Translate, the story is harder to grasp than Schrödinger's cat.

Well, you have to be really really drunk to understand that gibberish! Agreed, good news he survived it, I hope his friends and/or family will help him after this tragic episode.

On that other website the belief is that he died.

It can not be both.

Not really. He was just performing the double slit experiment.

Based on kohsantepheapdaily's latest article, it seems he survived.

He had supposedly been smoking meth. A security guard had seen him remove his shirt, pull out a knife and (attempt) to cut his own throat.

His full name, passport number, age and country of origin is posted in the same article.
