Two die from diesel fumes down well

Two men died and two others were injured after being asphyxiated in an 11-metre-deep well in Kampong Cham province’s Stung Trang district while using a diesel-powered pump to extract water. Chorn Chhun, 18, and his uncle, Khy Chhoeun, 36, were pronounced dead on arrival at a provincial hospital. Family members Ol Nun, 18, and Ky Doeun, 31, were injured while trying to rescue the men. “The nephew went into the well to turn on the generator and immediately shouted for help,” said Khun Suy, Arak Tnort commune police chief. “We tried to help by sending them to hospital, but the two men were already dead.”
