Old Man Bitten and Killed By Pig
An 80-year-old man died in hospital on Friday evening after being bit by a neighbor’s pig at his Prey Chrom village home in Prey Veng province earlier in the day, according to police.

The 50kg pig was tied about 300 meters from Prak Pron’s home in Prey Touteung commune when it broke free, Mesang district police chief Nov Hach said. When Mr. Pron tried to chase the animal away, it bit him three or four times on his legs, Mr. Hach added...

Death by Live Fish

Man Dies after Swallowing Fish

A 45-year-old man died after a perch slipped into his throat and choked him as he attempted to bite and kill it in Kampong Speu’s Oral district on Saturday afternoon, according to police.

Sae Kin, a single man, was living with relatives in Trapaing Torng village at the time of his death, deputy district police chief On Puth Hong said.

Mr. Kin had caught the fish in a nearby rice field and when he was preparing it to eat, he tried using the common practice of biting the fish to kill it, but the perch slipped down his throat.

“The perch got into his throat. He did not swallow it on purpose. He could not crush it with his hands to kill it, so he bit it. Unluckily, the fish entered his throat,” Mr. Puth Hong said.

By the time his relatives found him and brought him to the hospital, Mr. Kin had already died.

A similar incident happened in March when a woman choked to death on a fish while preparing it for dinner in Preah Vihear’s Kulen district.

In January, an infant girl died after accidentally swallowing a live fish while unsupervised in her home in Kampong Chhnang province.

With the fish thing, I have a question. Surely this is a very inconvenient and risky manner to kill fish to eat? Everywhere else you just whack it on its head, rather than having a sashimi lolly for lunch. There are rocks and sticks freely available.

Right. Whack it on the head, or stick it in the bag/net/bucket. I guess they've been doing this since forever, and no-one has added one plus one yet.

There was another of these 'fish stuck in throat' deaths a few months back.
... give 'em a quick, short, sharp shock ...
