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.

Some of these comments actually sicken me! Firstly people saying not wearing a helmet is ‘retarded’... not reading the article where it says nothing about him not wearing a helmet is retarded! People saying he should pay back every cent and he doesn’t deserve it and is begging - his MANY friends clubbed together to raise money for him and his family because he is so so loved and truly deserves it, he’s a genuine guy as are his family and you should be truly ashamed if you have written unnecessary or nasty things on here, don’t like the situation or whatever keep it to yourself and move on you don’t need to upset others with it.

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 wasn’t talking about him specifically, the comment was about foreigners in general, sorry.

While it may not be nice for friends and relatives of the poor lad to read this, you seem to overlook one thing. That's the fact people from that part of the world are kind of independent, or want to be independent, and are considered to be taking care of themselves. Fundraising when shit hits the fan doesn't match that attitude.

It seems the poor guy didn't take care of himself, since someone is raising funds for him now. It also raises the question how good this poor fellow has been taking care of his family so far, like his little lovely daughter for instance, since he didn't even take care of himself well enough.

So even though he's been extremely unlucky, criticism is not totally unfounded.

Yes that’s totally fine but funnily enough have you considered he might have that attitude too? It wasn’t him asking people to help him whilst hes been in a coma was it... also the fact that it is extremely clear you haven’t read his story makes me feel like your comment is dismissible - he has a son not a daughter. And he is the best dad his boy could wish for. Find something better to do with your life then judge and abuse people!

If you believe saying:

"So even though he's been extremely unlucky, criticism is not totally unfounded."

is judgemental and abusive that's OK, but I don't think it is.

And if the poor lad is the best father his boy could ask for I'm confident the little boy has medical insurance. That's a good thing in Cambodia where kids are exposed to all kind of nasty diseases.

I dare say the “best” dad ... really best, top of the heap ... would have gotten health insurance for himself and his family and stopped riding around without a helmet once he had a child!

No but questioning his ability to look after his child is yes. And me too.

I’m gonna go ahead and take that as a no from you, I’m also gonna say he didn’t not have health insurance at all it just hasn’t covered and i’ll admit at present I don’t know the ins and outs of that - but I certainly know a lot more than you and if you need to comment your lacking opinion maybe find more facts out first.
