Battambang, Cambodia News: A report says a 23 year old woman shocked local people in Battambang after she jumped from the Old Bridge into the Sangker river (which has risen to 13 meters) at 2pm on August 20, 2018. The locals went to fish her out because they were afraid that she would drown.

The police took her to the police station for questioning, but the woman said that she was just going for a swim. The by-standers suggested that she may have been drunk or under the influence of drugs.
The woman was in possession of a Cambodian ID card, 500,000 riel in cash, and 2 bus tickets(from Battambang to Phnom Penh and Phnom Penh to Sihanoukville). The police said they would contact the victim's family on August 20, 2018.

This is where the habit of swimming in your clothes leads to confusion.

Yea, I would have told her to take them off.
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.

A bit of backtracking to save face there methinks. My guess is it's a call for attention.
