Three Cambodian workers killed in Songkhla factory accident


SONGKHLA, Sept 8 – Three Cambodian industrial workers were killed this morning by flying machine parts in a latex processing factory.

The victims, two men and one woman, were migrant workers with legal work permits, identified as Zat In, 21, Chanhuan Seng, 26, and Sarit Sen, 26.

Ten workers were working when the incident occurred, according to the initial police investigation.

The process required removing parts of the machine for cleaning every two hours. The workers were hit when loose-fitting parts returned to the processing equipment flow off at high-speed, killing the three victims.

The factory owner pledged to take responsibility and compensate the victims’ families, including costs for the transfer of their bodies to their homes in Cambodia.
