Dear listeners, we have a caller who’s been shot

A Phnom Penh’s motorbike rider who was shot in an armed robbery took to the airwaves to call for help early yesterday morning.

Police said the man was riding home from a nightclub with his girlfriend when five suspects, brandishing a gun, demanded he stop.

The man refused, drawing the ire of the gunman, who shot him in the hip. Rather than call the cops, the man called the popular ABC Cambodia radio call-in channel to report what had happened.

Sure enough, police quickly arrived on the scene, although not quickly enough to save the man’s moto.
