Another chain of dead accident in a well
Kroche. On 2nd of June seven persons died in Siem Reap, among them 4 children, trying to take out a bill note from a well (see Phnom Penh Post.) Something similar happened this weekend in Kroche, though the casualties were less. A man fell inside a well trying to rescue his dog in Lo Iek Village, Chroy Banteay Commune, Praek Prosoph District, Kroche Province, northern Cambodia. As soon as the man fall, his neighbour ran to his rescued and also fall inside. The mother of the first man, seeing that they did not come out, went also inside, making three deaths this Saturday. There are not further reports on this incident that demonstrate a lack of culture on security among the rural populations. In Cambodia wells are very important for the provision of water, however, they remain in very poor conditions, open to the free access of children and with lack of hygienic practices.
