Factory workers faint after hearing ghost tale

About 20 workers at Vanco Industrial in Kandal province’s Ang Snuol district fainted while working yesterday, after an older colleague told them a ghost story about a suicide in the factory’s restroom.

Tuy Vang, labour dispute resolution officer at Collective Union Movement of Workers, who went down to see the factory yesterday and talked to the workers said that about 20 workers had become so spooked by the story that they passed out.

The workers have been allowed to stay home for two days to recover.

Company representatives could not be contacted yesterday.
