Only 37 years old? Still pretty young for a local to die of a heart attack. Possibly preventable if he didn’t work so long rest and water in the brutal heat. At least it wasn’t Neak Ta.

RIP. Condolences to his family.

This is brutal, but I'd like to know what he died from. Maybe "heart attack", but he was only 37. What sort of conditions are these guys working under ?
Clue: sometimes the heavy machinery work on Sihanoukville construction sites goes on all night without interruption.

RIP anyway and thoughts to his family.

When I was a boy, I would be told all the time that "hard work never killed anyone"
Perhaps it was just a heart attack. When do you think he had his last check up? :?

For the vast majority, a little hard work is good.
Continuous non-stop hard work can be deadly.

Both Japan and Korea have terms of ‘working to death’ as a cause of death. The latest was a young news reporter who was working 20-23 hrs a day for a few months straight before dying at her desk.
