Woman survives attempted suicide

A newlywed who drank battery acid in an attempt to kill herself after her husband left her has recovered after spending one night at a hospital in Kampong Chhnang province, a police official said yesterday. The 33-year-old from Boribor district was lucky to be alive after villagers reacted quickly on Friday, rushing her to a nearby health facility, district police chief Noun Sovanrith said. “She got angry with her husband, who had just married her three days [before] and then left her to stay alone at home,” he said. “She decided to drink a small glass of acid to kill herself, but she was helped by her husband’s family members.”
