Chinese Woman Has Unexplained Seizure at Golden Lions, Sihanoukville

Post by CEOCambodiaNews » Tue Oct 16, 2018 2:08 pm

Sihanoukville, Cambodia News: On October 16, 2018, at 4 am, a Chinese woman was discovered having a seizure at the Golden Lions roundabout in Sihanoukville. While it is said that she had overdosed on drugs, it is also possible that the woman was having some sort of epileptic fit, or a seizure unrelated to drugs.

In Cambodia, many unexplained types of behavior are attributed to drink or drug abuse. And it must be said that, most of the time, that is not an unreasonable assumption, particularly concerning foreigners. In this case, a foreign woman who is out on the town in Sihanoukville at 4am has a seizure on a public road.

Presumably the woman recovered, but it is not related whether anyone helped her, or called an ambulance, or whether the woman recovered unassisted while by-standers took her photo.

And many seizures in Cambodia are attributed to possession by bad spirits (as in ghosts).

Apparently, according to Zuckerberg, the lady in question is not wearing underwear....

Can bad spirits also possess foreigners as well?

I have been told in the past that the reason that I don't see ghosts when others can is because I don't believe in ghosts. Believing is seeing.

The video is quite bizarre, she pushes herself along the road on her back and does some crazy flips. Whatever the cause, she needed to be restrained. Personally I avoid physically touching strangers, especially loonies, so I don't blame the bystanders for stepping back. She looked like she was seconds away from screaming and her head exploding like in that movie Scanners.

I have seen Chinese women having some spectacular meltdowns, it could well just be normal.
