Mentally-ill man falls from lamp post, dies

A 20-YEAR-OLD man was found dead after he fell from the top of a lamp post while reportedly playing the flute on Tuesday, in Kampong Speu province’s Samrong Tong district. Several factory workers found the victim’s body after he was electrocuted while playing the woodwind instrument, Mok Thon, chief of Pneay commune in Samrong Tong district, said.

Mok Thon said the parents of the victim confirmed their son suffered from mental illness stemming from malaria. “His parents said their son liked to climb up posts often, but on the day of the incident he was met with electric shock,” he said.
