University student drowns on birthday

THE coast guard is still looking for the body of a university student who drowned while celebrating his birthday with friends on Monday in Sihanoukville town. Chi Kuong, vice-director of the tourism police office, said the victim, 20-year-old Seng Leang Chhay, a design major at Phnom Penh’s SITEC University, had been wading in the ocean with friends when he went missing.

“The victim was drawn into a deeper part of the sea after being struck by a large wave and perished because he could not swim,” Chi
Kuong said.
