Two drown in Kampong Thom province dam

Two people died in separate drownings at the Mouy Makara dam in Kampong Thom province over the weekend, officials said. “Sar Va, 29, and Bou Sreyroth, 19, died when they went down to swim in the dam in Baray district,” said Khuon Bunhuor, Baray district military police chief. Both victims, who did not know each other, are said to have entered deep water without being able to swim. Meanwhile, the body of a six-year-old boy was found in a hole in Kampot town’s Kampong Bay commune on Sunday. It is thought he drowned while playing in water, commune chief Nuth Ngem said.
