PHNOM PENH (Khmer Times –The tragic list of drowning victims this past weekend continues to grow. Two children, a 13-year-old boy and his 10-year-old sister, are reported to have drowned at the Bousra Waterfall in Mondulkiri province’s Pichreada district. 
 
Witnesses said that a man tried to save the boy but his efforts came too late. Other children at the scene claimed seeing the boy in the company of a girl, his younger sister. Villagers went back to the site to search for her but could only recover her body. 
 
Unicef’s Child Drowning in Asia report found that drowning was the cause of a quarter of all deaths for children aged 1 to 9, and that more Cambodian boys than girls drown after the age of 5.
