One killed by falling metal object

A 48-year-old woman was killed yesterday after a piece of metal fell from the upper floors of a large construction site in Prampi Makara district’s Veal Vong commune and hit her on the head, according to police and the woman’s son.

Mao Veasna, the 27-year-old son of victim Puth Vanny, said that he was with his mother when the “long” piece of metal fell through the sky and killed her instantly.

“I have not yet filed the complaint, but I will after I complete my mother’s funeral. I will demand compensation from them, but I don’t know how much yet,” Veasna said.

A police official who declined to be named said yesterday that the police did not arrest anyone at the construction site, which is next to the Olympic Stadium, but officers went inside to get more information.

The official said it might be owned by the Overseas Cambodia Investment Corporation (OCIC), but couldn’t say for certain. A representative of OCIC could not be reached for comment yesterday.
