22yo British Expat Sam Penhallow Dies in Phnom Penh

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.

At least the family hasn’t got the added stress of repatriating his body home.

RIP.

far too young
young people can have heart attacks/strokes too, theres no age limit, it just doesnt get reported in the west, i remember a couple of local stories last year
https://www.lincolnshirelive.co.uk/news ... al-1589185
A 20-year-old University of Lincoln student who had more than seven strokes after a night out has taken to Youtube to share her emotional story.

Luna Jarvis, who studies Film and Media at the university, suffered several strokes in February.


During her moving video she reveals how, while suffering from the early symptoms, nobody believed her due to her age.

She claims both university staff and paramedics told her she was too young to have a stroke.

East Midlands Ambulance Trust said that ambulance staff recognised her symptoms and took action, taking Luna to hospital for further care and treatment.

After a night out Luna said the left side of her face began to tingle and she had several episodes during the next day when she collapsed and had to be rushed to A&E where doctors assumed she was just drunk.

Eventually after several tests it was revealed she was actually suffering from a stroke.

A runner has said that he is lucky to be alive after he suffered a stroke on Christmas Eve while running on a treadmill at the gym.

38-year-old Ronnie Staton from Retford who is a running coach in Lincoln was at the Sports Direct gym in the south west of Lincoln training for the Boston marathon next year when he started to feel ill.
there was another i remember too as it was the girl who used to share a flat with my friend, she was only in her 20's too
