Alcohol death: British professor poisoned

A BRITISH professor working at Pannasatra University’s Battambang campus died on Monday from suspected alcohol poisoning, police said yesterday.

John Flint David, aged 50, was an English-language professor at the university and died at about 7:00pm on Monday night at the Battambang Provincial Referral Hospital, said Cheth Vanny, Battambang Provincial Police deputy chief.

“He died from an overdose of drinking Yinsin bottled wine,” Cheth Vanny told the Post yesterday by telephone.

David had been married to a Cambodian 28-year-old woman in Battambang province. His wife told police that her husband was a regular wine drinker, and always drank four to five glasses of Yinsin wine every night when he finished his English teaching and returned home.

The doctor’s report concluded that the British national died from excess consumption of alcohol.

The report said the level of alcohol in his system was very high and that he had died due to alcohol poisoning, Cheth Vanny said.
