Tragedy was narrowly averted on Saturday morning when a mentally unstable 45-year-old construction worker cut his safety rope and threw himself from the top of the scaffolding surrounding the two-storey home he was working on in Por Sen Chey district.
Fortunately, a pile of sand broke his fall and potentially saved his life. Even more fortunately, the man is said to be receiving treatment for his mental health issues but had only been on his medication for one day.
