DISAPPOINTED TEEN JUMPS FROM BRIDGE

Srey Tear, an 18-year-old factory worker, was rescued by a Cham fishing boat after she tried to commit suicide by jumping from the Chruoy Changvar bridge in Cham Choa commune, Dangkor district, Takeo province on Monday. According to a witness, Srey Tear ordered a moto taxi driver to stop in the middle of the bridge and hurled herself into the river. Police who questioned the girl said that Srey Tear tried to commit suicide because she was disappointed with herself for trusting her girlfriend who later proved dishonest. The police have consoled and re-educated the girl. The crowd of onlookers who gathered after the incident created a 15-minute traffic jam on the bridge.
