    PHNOM PENH: Three people died in a well in eastern Cambodia after trying to rescue a dog which had fallen inside, police said on Sunday. The tragedy unfolded in a remote area of Kratie province on Saturday when Say Phalla, 25, climbed down the 10-meter-deep (32 feet) well after his pet plunged into the water. “Say Phalla used a rope to climb down the well to save his dog but suffocated due to a lack of oxygen at the bottom, disappearing in the water,” local police chief Men Bunthoeun told Agence France-Presse by telephone. A male neighbor, followed by Phalla’s 64-year-old mother, then climbed down in a desperate attempt to save him and the pet, but they also passed out. It was unclear how the dog, which also died, crossed the barrier encircling the well.
