Construction workers fall out over $20 debt

A construction worker spent his days building things up only for a co-worker to hack him down on Sunday.

The 32-year-old had borrowed $20 from his friend, 25, on the condition he would repay it all in a week.

The consequences of missing the date proved bloody for the builder, whose friend became enraged at not getting all of his money back and followed him home.

Backed into a corner, the builder was hacked with a sharp object and left to be sent to hospital. The suspect is on the run. KOH SANTEPHEAP
