We also had a crash with another boat on our way from Siem Reap to Battambang, but there was a serious injury as one man on our boat was knocked unconscious and needed medical attention as he had suffered serious head trauma. We were two hours from anywhere and no one on the boat knew basic first aid let alone wilderness first responder skills. If the boat had sank, we wouldn’t have had enough life jackets on board for everyone.
Luckily, there was another boat near by that towed us** an hour away where a car met the man to take him to a hospital. The rest of us were towed to Battambang.
**Our boat was badly damaged and the engine didn’t work anymore.
Not saying that you shouldn’t take this ride, just be aware of the risks and be prepared in the event of an accident.over 2 years ago
