7 die in search for 3,000

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.

7 die in search for 3,000

3,000 riel that is.

The incident occurred in Banteay Srei district when a man accidentally dropped 3,000 riel (0.75 U.S. dollars) into the well and he got down to the well's bottom to take the money back and lapsed into a coma in the well - See more at: http://www.thecambodiaherald.com/cambod ... qphGw.dpuf" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Should have lowered a candle down the well first.

Could have been CO2 or H2S as well.

In Kenya years ago, a woman dropped a mobile phone down a toilet (maybe that's why they're called drop toilets).

Anyway, she got this poor guy to go down and try and retrieve it for cash, he drowned/died, then a second guy went down, he also died, finally the police stopped the recovery effort.

I myself went into the Sabi River in Zimbabwe to recover keys for a locked Mercedes Benz dropped by mistake from Birchenough Bridge. In retrospect, not smart, considering the presence of crocodiles.

Trees in the vicinity of the welll most likely used up the oxygen.
But on a serious note, 3,000 riels, seriously? Seven people dead. Amazing. RIP.

The idea that seeing the world is going from place to place to look at obvious things is an illusion natural to dull minds.

That's very sad and tragic.

Avoidable IMO.

RIP.
