Father takes 7yo Daughter to Commit Suicide from Chroy Changvar Bridge

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.

This is heart-breaking. Poor girl. Hopefully, there are other family members who will want to take her in. Her mother for example ?
There are so many NGOs to save kids in Cambodia, but most of the time the kids' problems are caused by wider problems in society like family break-ups due to poverty, domestic violence, and migrating workers/parents, or as in this case, a lack of social support for the mentally ill and their families.
:evil:

And as an aside, as someone else mentioned, there have been a lot of suicides or attempted suicides from Chroy Changvar Bridge recently. The copy-cat effect is a real problem as well.

What about the man in Sydney yesterday who killed both his teenage kids with the handgun and then killed himself. What a fucking arsehole.

I can agree with that,, it's a common problem in custody disputes and there are plenty of places for women to get help when problems arise but there is very little help for the men and until that area is sorted out the end problems will continue.
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.
