Strain truck tries to cross Angkor Thom ancient door
- Strain post by Suvarnabhumi shows a truck trying to cross one ancient gate of Angkor Thom.
- There is not report of any accident or traffic event inside the archaeological site that would need the firefighters.
A strain post by Suvarnabhumi Facebook page shows what it seems to be a firefighters’ truck trying to cross one of the ancient doors of Angkor Thom in Siem Reap Province. I have sent a message to Suvarnabhumi about the event. The truck seems plugged right in the gate:
Angkor Thom, a huge ancient city from the 12th century, has 4 main gates at the end of the causeway that extend 50 meters across the mouth. It is one of the Cambodian UNESCO’s World Heritage. Suvarnabhumi seems to request more information about this strain event. How is it possible that Apsara Authority allows a truck to comes inside the archaeological site this way? If there was not another way to attend an emergency – which kind of emergency inside the temples? – it would mean also that there is not a safety project at the place. It is to me more disturbing than foreigners making naked selfish in the temples. We are looking for more information about it. If you know something, please let us know.
