Cambodian Okhna Assists Destitute American Yachtsman

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.

Sihanoukville, Cambodia News: On February 22, 2019, Sihanoukville Okhna Tea Vichet, heard that a 72-year-old American, who was living on a yacht near Snake Island with his wife, was suffering from an illness but did not have the money to go to hospital for treatment. The Okhna then ordered his staff to go and pick up the victim by boat and take him to the provincial hospital, where he paid for the American's medical expenses.

The American was subsequently moved to Calmette Hospital in Phnom Penh. The man's wife has expressed her gratitude for the kind and generous gesture of Mr. Tea Vichet, who helped her sick husband.

Thanks Richard.
That's the eternal translation problem of calling all foreigners "barang", ie. French.
Good luck to him whatever his nationality.

Very kind of him. I thanked him on his facebook group/business page.

But had to laugh a little about the dramatic video that was made of the event located on said page. But damn that mans stomach sure was distended!

amen to that.

insult to all locals living on a boat.

if one is that destitute, sell your "yacht", loose your ego.

always thought having a yacht (not a boat) is the most expensive way to travel for free.

wishing him a good recovery.
