UK Hostel Owner, Joe Morrissey, in a Coma in Sihanoukville

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.

What a tiresome thread. It's like 440 all over again. No one knows the circumstances of the accident and it's not compulsory to contribute. But often many people do and save someone's life. Intensive care at that Thai hospital in Phnom Penh was $2000 a day ten years ago.
Calling people snowflake is just ridiculous, what happened to good old fashioned abuse.

People who buy $20 helmets just so the police won't stop them aren't the smartest either. I'd rather spend $200+ on a real helmet to greatly reduce the chances of having to go to a shitty 3rd world hospital and have Bong Heng ducktape my head together and staple my face back on upside down in the event of an accident.
depends where and how you ride. some helnet test areuseless like drooping a steel spike from 1 metre. at low speedup to 30kmh the cheap helmets can be just as good depending what you hit. At 180kph the cheap hemet will be probably useless.
so will be the expensive one!
I used to think so, but I worked for a firm that specialised in traffic accident compensation. In town a helmet will save you from nasty injuries, especially a good full face which can protect your jaw (having daid that we had one guy who near dies because the chin piece collapsed into his mouth). It will not save you from the number 10 bus running over your head, but a trip through a windscreen in survivable.
On dual carrigaeways a good helmet is much more useful at speed if you slide of ona bend If you a high side at speed nothing will save you.

I have never seen him or know him. But,why are you talking about helmets for someone who needs help? Things with or without a helmet have already happened. I will send it to the Chinese community to help him. Maybe I don't know much about your culture.

I didn't mean it to anyone, just to make my point.

Leave everything behind, if you need help one day, would you like to see this post?

When I see Westerners on motos with no helmet it makes my blood boil. So fucking irresponsible.
Does it say he doesn’t have helmet on...? Why it matters to you is beyond me.

I'm sure his patents would prefer donations rather than moaners.

:tophat:
I prefer a land cruiser over a pick up. Life isn’t a request show. If they love their son, they should take a loan from a bank instead of begging for money.
it’s his friends who want to club together to help him - it’s not begging it’s helping someone completely adored, I’m assuming people maybe wouldn’t react the same if it was you just from reading your opinion...
