A 70-year-old man in Pursat province‘s Krakor district is said to have “died of laughter” after watching a popular TV comedy show.
Father of eight Keo Thorn, a council member in Chhoeu Tom commune, was enjoying a rest while watching television on Saturday afternoon, following a morning at work.
However, while enjoying the television comedy, the retired official from provincial land management department began laughing hysterically and suffered a heart attack, commune chief Thuem Ngok said.
“His wife said he laughed so much. His face was very pale. She sent him to the hospital but he died immediately,” Thuem Ngok said.
Well-known Cambodian comedian Neay Koy, also known as Chuong Chi, was on the show that Keo Thorn had been watching.
“I just share my condol-ences. I am sorry to hear this information,” Neay Koy told The Post yesterday.
