Slippery bathroom tiles strike again, Aussie lady teaching in Siem Reap hospitalized

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.

Ha, no, but I assume most readers can figure out they can dry the slippery surface, apply non-slip strips, and worry no more. I think like $7-$10 to do a few danger spots.

Also works for staircases, esp. metal outdoor ones in the rainy season.
Most old age pensioners with brains have sorted this problem out a long time ago. Nothing is better than a attractive bar-lady to join you in the shower to stop you slipping over.
hmm. This victim appears to be female. why would she want an attractive bar lady to join her in the shower, or do you know something we don't :stir:

So you dont believe in equal rights for woman ?
Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.

Common injury for aging Westerners.

Two prominent folks died from slipping, that's the old owner OTOF, and the for er owner of Can by Publications, LTO.

Seems like a needless and ignominious way to die.

Not if there's a fire, not even if you hear the sound of a thud from my home and one week later there's a smell coming from there that can only be a decaying human body and you have to hold a hanky to your face because the stench is so thick that you think you're going to faint.

Even then, don't come knocking...Not for ANY reason.

Yeah, right. :facepalm:

Neither of them slipped on slippery bathroom tiles. And neither of them I would consider 'aging'.
... give 'em a quick, short, sharp shock ...

Ok, fine, gain some weight and some age and slide around on wet tiles or smooth flip flops in the rain if you want.

<shrug>

Cambodian health care, emergency services, and "preventative maintenance" are not things I'd rely on.
