Factory fainting blamed on spirits

A shoe factory in Kandal province’s Ang Snuol district has temporarily closed after 35 employees fainted while on the job this week, and its owner has begun preparations to rid the facility of evil spirits. District police inspector Tith Vong said the fainting spells at the Tiger Wing shoe factory occurred on Tuesday and Wednesday, and that the factory closed Thursday. He said the owner planned to hold “traditional rites” to drive out a spirit believed to have “possessed” the workers. But workers at Ang Snuol district hospital, where 19 of the workers were sent, said the fainting was caused by insufficient levels of calcium and glucose.
