Freak Accident Kills a Woman and Injures Her Son at Traditional Praying Ceremony

Post by CEOCambodiaNews » Mon Jul 02, 2018 8:12 pm

Kampong Chnang: On July 1, a strong wind caused the death of a 33 year old woman and injured her 9 year old son at an ancestors praying ceremony in Roleakpaea district, Kampong Chhnang.

There was a big crowd at the praying ceremony for the ancestors that is celebrated for 3 days every year. There were all sorts of street foods, and games for kids such as the Bouncy Castle to keep them entertained. Suddenly, a strong gust of wind blew out an umbrella, which hit the victim who was taking her son to ride the horse toy. The woman died immediately.
