After I woke up yesterday, I immediately turn ON the TV which has been my normal routine but I got the shock of my life after seeing the news from CNN. Around 350 people died from a stampede at Phnom Penh. The supposed to be a very happy celebration of the annual Water Festival suddenly turned into a night mare...that's how the news described the tragedy.
Seeing the sad news on TV and the video footage of the dead bodies being inspected and transported, I felt equally sad and devastated. This is such a pain for the whole country. I just hope that none of my friends and local colleagues and their families are affected.
At any rate, the rescue operations still on going and I prayed that families of the victims will get the necessary aids due to them. My prayers and sympathy to the people of Cambodia....May this tragedy never happen again.
