School Teacher dies in gas explosion at Don Bosco Technical School in Sihanoukville, 7 Injured

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.

Some of the most well-mannered students I've ever met were at Don Bosco's.

Great place to hire from, if you don't own Satan's Kitchen, haha.

Tragic.

He taught quite a few technicians I know.

They were all quite upset.

It's very sad, Don Bosco have been doing a great job here. Organizations like this do a lot to help disadvantaged kids gain skills and better lives.

RIP Seng Sarath.

‘Gas canisters’ caused blast at school in S’ville
13 June 2018

Preah Sihanouk province fire experts have confirmed that a blast at the Don Bosco Technical School was caused by a leak in two gas canisters that had been welded together.

Bou Sothy, the province’s deputy police chief in charge of fire, told The Post that upon inspecting the school after Thursday’s blast, officials found a 15kg canister connected to a 35kg canister that had been used with welding equipment.

“After careful inspection by our experts, the gas explosion was caused by the leakage of gas from one of the cylinders, not lightning,” he confirmed.
