    Irish man dead and second hospitalised in Cambodia

    Irish man dead and second hospitalised in Cambodia
    Pair were found in a hostel in capital Phnom Penh



    An investigation has been launched after an an Irish man died after he was discovered in a Cambodian Hostel.

    Martin Stephen Hale, from Lisburn, Co Antrim, was discovered on Friday on the floor of a room in the Happy House Guesthouse in Phnom Penh.
    The 34-year-old had been travelling with Dean William McWilliams, who was also found lying on the floor, close to Mr Hale's body.

    The pair, who are believed to be cousins, were taken to Calmette Hospital, were an unconscious Mr McWilliams was treated in the intensive care unit. He has since been released.
    The Happy House is a cheap guesthouse offering dorm beds to backpackers for as little as 3 night.

    In 2013, Mr Hale was arrested with two others in Northern Ireland and charged with conspiracy to supply Class B drugs after police intercepted a 400,000 (474,000) consignment of suspected herbal cannabis on a lorry from Scotland. Mr Hale was also charged with having criminal property.

    "He is now missing (and) we don't know where he is or even if he is safe. Nobody has heard from him.
    "He was last seen at Happy House Guesthouse in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, at 4am Sunday morning (Cambodian time).

    "If you know anybody in Cambodia, please can you tag them in this post.
    "We're all so worried and just desperate to bring him home safe. His name is Dean McWilliams. He is 22."

    Hours later, a family friend posted a message to a website that had been trying to help find the Antrim man.
    The person wrote: "Dean has been found through online appeals. Somebody waited at the (British) Embassy and hospital, and in a twist of fate Dean appeared

    "We have been in contact with him. We have someone who has offered to keep him and help him gather his belongings, to take him to hospital to be cleared to fly, and then to try and recover his passport, then keep him until we can arrange flights."
    A spokesman for the Foreign Office said: "We are providing support to the family of a British man following his death in Phnom Penh in Cambodia on Friday, July 1. Our sympathies are with them at this difficult time.

    "We are also providing support to the family of another British man who was hospitalised with the decea
    sed."

    It's that weird Norn accent. Never easy to clearly understand what they're on about. A bit like they're speaking through a bagpipe in a female child's voice.

    Cambodia drugs death suspect was a 'good son'


    The mother of a man who died in Cambodia from a suspected drug induced heart attack has described him as a "very good son"

    Martin Stephen Hale, 34, from Lisburn, Co Down was found dead in a guesthouse in Phnom Penh.

    SHARE
    His mother Teresa Temple said he died from a cardiac arrest after taking morphine tablets.

    "Martin was a very good son, very kind hearted to everybody, he saw no wrong in anyone," she said.

    The heartbroken mother said she had warned her son about his drug use in the past.

    "I tried to advise him all the time about getting away from drugs but it was just one of those things - he seemed to think he was all right," she told the BBC.

    Police in Cambodia said another man from Northern Ireland was taken to hospital after being found in the same room of the Happy House guesthouse after the incident last week.

    Relatives of the man launched an online appeal to trace him after being unable to make contact with him after his discharge from hospital.

    It is understood he was later located close to the British Embassy.

    A spokeswoman from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office said: "We are providing support to the family of a British man following his death in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, on Friday 1 July.

    What's with you Irish boys needing to constantly post in Bold?

    Was it declared in the Constitution after the great famine of 1916, or something?

    Should have stuck to the ganja


    “DON'T GO HERE”
    The only reason this place has so many excellent reviews is because it is a weed den. The smell is overpowering as soon as you walk in and everyone is sitting there openly smoking it with glazed eyes and dopey faces.
    Average accomodation but amazing atmosphere. Pretty much a cambodian coffeeshop( if you know, you know)
    Don't go there unless you interested in smoking pot every day with the owner/stuff.
