Hard-knock life for city construction worker

Hard-knock life for city construction worker

Wednesday just went from bad to worse for a construction worker in Phnom Penh’s Tuol Kork district after he was involved in a road accident on his way back from treating a wound sustained earlier that day.

The 28-year-old reportedly cut his leg with a handsaw, and was taken by a friend on a motorbike to a nearby hospital to have it patched up.

But on the way back, a speeding motorbike slammed into the pair, leaving them both with head injuries.

And to top it off, the culprit sped off into the distance. Both men were hospitalised.
