American Steven Simonsen Jumps to his Death From 4th Story on Street 136 in Phnom Penh (Next to Spider-Man Bar)

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 may be one of many foreigner deaths in Cambodia that wouldn't have happened if the local cops or business owners weren't totally incompetent.
Incompetent at what? Negotiating with a potentially suicidal person? Would you consider yourself competent to do so?

I'm sure if the incident was reversed and no one appeared with the man on the ledge, then you'd be decrying heartless Cambodians.

So what would the correct course of action have been? Just leave him be and quietly stack mattresses around the perimeter of the hotel grounds, whilst hoping for the best?
That's ridiculous. Cam Nivag would do anything he could to save a life. Oh what, what's this... general-chatter/may-may-not-have-just-w ... 26945.html
