Man falls to death at Sorya mall

Onlookers were shocked yesterday evening when a 57-year-old Israeli national fell to his death from an upper-level landing inside the Sorya Shopping Center, landing on the ground level of the popular Phnom Penh shopping centre amid horrified onlookers, according to Psar Thmey I commune chief Sin Ton.

Commune police chief Seng Vutha said police had been able to identify the man from a copy of his passport found in his pocket, and that the man’s body had subsequently been sent to the Stung Meanchey pagoda.

“According to the witness, first they heard the sound of glass breaking, and then they saw the man fall down to the ground floor inside the mall,” he said.

Officers examined each floor of the mall, but found no broken glass.

Police are investigating to determine whether the victim’s fall was an accident or a suicide, though currently the signs point to suicide, Vutha added.
