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.

Further information says that the deceased was in the habit of drinking heavily, and that he was probably drunk when he jumped at around midnight. He was studying for a Psychology degree. No information on a possible motive.

I am assuming they are counting floors the European way: ground floor, first floor, second floor. That would mean a height of what, 6 meters? Plenty to kill yourself.

Actually the first, if the photo is correct. That should only be a fractured pelvis. Guess he went over head first?
