I guess it would be too embarrassing to show a photo of the safety belt that broke.
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.

I nearly killed myself while learning my trade & nobody knew, just so the boss could get around in his Mercedes sports.
The company should be prosecuted but won't.

Shame. Surprising this doesn't happen more. Safety on work sites is (very slowly) improving though.

This is really scary. So many people are risking their lives for $7 or less than per day.
បើសិនធ្វើចេះ ចេះឲ្យគេកោត បើសិនធ្វើឆោត ឆោតឲ្យគេអាណិត។

If you know a lot, know enough to make them respect you, if you are stupid, be stupid enough so they can pity you.
