According to his boss, U Potna, 35, the night before, he and the victim bought 7 beers to drink together on the third floor of the construction site, and the victim drank three cans of beer and he drank four. Then he went downstairs and left the man resting in a hammock. The next thing he knew was that the man was found dead on the ground at the building site the following morning. RIP.

UPDATE: After the police investigation, it was concluded that the man fell by accident from the third floor in the dark after he had drunk a few beers.

However, the family of the deceased do not agree that this was an accidental fall, and on the morning of January 26, 2020, they filed a complaint at the police station in Krang Prang. They want the man's workmates to submit to further questioning and they have asked the Inspector of the Dangkor District for mercy and help in the search for justice.

Not sure how tall this building is going to be but those supporting pillars don't appear to be to thick !!!!,
Anyway buying 7 tinies probably wasn't a good idea, 6 or 8 would have been better, no argument over the odd number then.....
