Man killed after boat collision in Pursat

A man was killed in a boat collision at Pursat province’s Prek Trabek lake, in Kandieng district on Wednesday.

Authorities in Kanhchor commune say that Khlot Houng, 35, fell off his boat when it collided with another owned by Mut Phally, 48.

Liv Senghing, Kandieng district’s police chief, said Houng was riding the boat with his family when they encountered Phally’s craft in a narrow and curvy waterway and were unable to avoid the crash.

“Houng fell off the boat into the lake and was missing until the next morning when his body was found,” he said, adding that all of Houng’s family survived the incident. Senghing said police brought Phally in for questioning and are currently investigating the accident.
