Regarding the article "Antonov Crashes in Kandal" on Oct. 19-Nov. 1, 2007;
I feel disappointed after reading the article, which showed villagers collecting
pieces of the plane's cargo. It's now a bad habit of villagers to pick up materials
such as broken pieces, goods, mobile phone, wallet, watch, jewelry and so on, when
there are accidents with injuries or unconscious victims. In my observation, villagers'
ambitious behaviors began with the fighting in July 1997 by soldiers who said these
things were the booty; this concept is opposite the people's concept in the 1980s,
when we were more likely to help and take care of each other.
Please stop picking up any stuff from accident victims to keep our national image.
