Chinese Man Smokes at a Gas Station...

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.

A dropped cigarette sparks...that is very efficient at igniting vapour
It is! Ever tried it? There would have to be a large amount of valour to do that damage. Gas, LPG, I can agree with. Vapour yes is heavier than air and is going to settle at ground level. Vapour from a petrol nozzle filling a car? Fault somewhere else I would think.

From looking at the video it looks like the car was at the GAS pump.

Again is it gas! LPG or Petrol (American gas). ?
Anyhow I don't really care. So there was another fire and plenty before and plenty will follow.

Khmer press and Facebook are saying the Chinese victim died of the burns today.

EDIT: I also note that the press is all over the place with the facts about this story. In one he is a passenger of a taxi, in others the driver of the car. In all cases though, it is stated that he fired up a cigarette during the fueling process and got burned.

Other reports state the Khmer taxi driver died and the Chinese guy is fine, but his cigarette caused the fire. Yup. Khmer press is quite factually accurate.

Yes. Or no.

I wouldn't be surprised if he did die. Looks like he had 3rd degree burns almost everywhere, and that's just asking for a deadly infection or something.

Khmer taxi driver wasn’t smoking and died already. His only crime was pumping the gas in the car.
