Helmet safety pays off handsomely for teen

In a scene onlookers described as something akin to a Chinese action movie, police in the capital’s Tuol Kork district on Sunday saved a 17-year-old who was attacked by two fellow students.

After a dispute, the two assailants chased the victim with belts and an axe, police said. As the victim tried to escape on motorbike, the duo pushed his bike over struck him in the head with the axe. Luckily for him, he was wearing his helmet. Police intervened and arrested the pair. KOH SANTEPHEAP
