The woman said that she has no husband or children, and that she had decided to end her life because she was diagnosed with epilepsy a year ago.

That's tragic, especially in a country that values relationships so highly. Life must be pretty rugged to have epilepsy and no support system.

Chroy Changvar Bridge - Phnom Penh
Image
Cambodia-Japan Friendship Bridge - It was constructed in 1966. During the war from 1973 to 1975 the Khmer Rouge forces mined twice to death in 1973. By 17th April 1975, all Phnom Penh citizens have been chased out of the city, by Khmer Rouge forces, to live and farm at the rural areas. Therefore, the bridge has been abandoned without taking care or repairing the damages from the war.

After the liberation on 7th January 1979, mixed provincial and municipal population, returned to live in Phnom Penh and the government started to rehabilitate the infrastructures in Phnom Penh that has been damaged from the war and abandonments. However, the bridge would not be constructed due to the financial constraint. But in 1995 the government got the donation of the Japanese government to reconstruct this bridge and the Japanese engineers repaired it.

Hi-rise construction sites have netting to stop things falling down , it maybe time for bridges to have the same.
Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.

Update: The man who jumped from Chroy Changvar Bridge shouted Help, Help! from the river, drawing the attention of some fishermen on the riverbank, who jumped in their boats to save him. Unfortunately, the rescue arrived too late to save the deceased, who remains unidentified. Police are searching for relatives.
