Drunk man drowns

A man thought to have been intoxicated drowned trying to swim across a two-metre canal obstructing his path home in Kampot province on Monday, an official said. Lat Toung, chief of Trach Khang Keut commune in Kampong Trach district, said 46-year-old Sum Sin had been drinking rice wine at the local pub after finishing work, before he encountered the canal on his way home. “Sum Sin was probably intoxicated and he was too weak to swim, so he drowned,” Lat Toung said. Villagers are reportedly raising money for his funeral.
