Foreigner in serious motorbike accident, Koh Kong

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.

Jesus christ. I wish we could get basic life saving skills as public education initiative....at least to try to keep someone alive until help can arrive. Dreadful that people must stand around and have no idea how to help. I am assuming they would if they could.but I may be wrong

Think you're wrong. It's entertainment, too many reruns on TV.
As my old Cajun bait seller used to say, "I opes you luck.

1. They have no clue what to do

2. They are worried if they try and it backfires, they will be held responsible

Even the cops don’t know first aid. I saw a Turk-tuck get clobbered by a garbage truck a few years ago. Place was heaving with cops, Red shirts where in town, but all they did is pick up the injured and and bounce them up and down. Probably not the best “first aid” with people possibly having internal injuries.

Again, no source.
How hard is it?
What excuse do you have to not post the source?

From my experience on every curvy road in Cambodia, including that same road a few weeks ago: the car.

He looks like a tough boy. He also looks happy to be alive.
