A garment worker died on Saturday after collapsing as she got out of a truck that had dropped her off at work in Kandal province’s Ksach Kandal district.

The National Social Security Fund said Hav Srey Neat fainted on her way into the Cambo Unisol factory in Vihea Sour village.

NSSF spokesman Chiev Bunrith said fellow workers brought Ms Neat into the factory’s clinic before she was transferred to a local hospital, where she was later pronounced dead.

“NSSF facilitated and transported her body to her home for her funeral,” Mr Bunrith said, adding that the family was also provided about $1000 in compensation.

On Yun, Ksach Kandal district deputy police chief, said the victim was promptly sent to hospital but succumbed to an illness not yet identified.

“She was sent to hospital, but unfortunately they could not save her,” he said. “She got off the truck and was going to work like any other day.”
