Four people drown in Siem Reap province

Four people drowned in two separate incidents in Siem Reap province on Sunday, according to local authorities.

Tep Punsen, Puok district police chief, said a father and son drowned in a pond in Khnat commune.

“The victims drowned in the pond while they were watering their crops,” Punsen said.

Authorities believe the son, Chhang Chhaina, 12, fell into the pond and his father, Chhuon Dolla, 46, tried to save him. Neither could swim and both drowned.

Meanwhile, Phuong Keovattana, 16, and Chea Sreymech, 16, drowned while swimming with friends at the Stung Srerng Dam’s reservoir in Sra Nge commune.

According to Nol Rong, Siem Reap city deputy police chief, a group of five students were swimming in the reservoir.

The three surviving students were rescued by nearby villagers.
