Orphan collecting spinach drowns

A 12-YEAR-OLD boy drowned in a deep waterhole on Saturday as he searched for water spinach to feed his family in Phnom Penh’s Dangkor district. Sok El, Kakab commune chief, said yesterday that Sen Sam Nang, who could not swim, had been searching for the vegetable with his aunt. “He drowned in a big hole in Kakab commune. His aunt could not help him,” he said, adding that Sen Sam Nang was an orphan. “His aunt said that they are poor and they always tried to find water spinach to support the family. The boy was not being careful,” he added.
