Cambodia is most deadly holiday destination for young Brits in 2017

Post by CEOCambodiaNews » Wed Mar 28, 2018 8:45 pm

The UK tabloid newspaper the Sun has looked at the statistics of where Brits under 40 are most likely to die while on holiday. And the most deadly country is... you guessed it, Cambodia.

28 March 2018
HOLIDAY HORROR: These are the deadliest countries in the world for young Brits to visit, with dozens dying in accidents, suicides and mysterious circumstances

Spain had the highest number of deaths with 49 Brits under the age of 40 dying in 2017, but Cambodia and Thailand had the highest death rate per head of annual visitors.

[Also] ranking among the top ten countries was Cambodia – where five Brit backpackers were this year arrested after cops raided a pool party because of “pornographic” dancing.
Some 11 young Brits lost their lives in the country in 2017, including backpacker Natalie Jade Seymour, 22, who was found dead in the party resort of Kampot.

Two other Brits died in the same resort the year before amid speculation about cheap drugs sold by local tuk tuk drivers that are reportedly rife in the city.
No cause of death was established for seven of the 11 Brits who lost their lives in the country in 2017, with their deaths remaining a mystery.

It ain't too safe for 59-year-old Brits either.
