Cambodian Trees Will Steal Your Oxygen

According to the Phen Nomh Post, M. Night Shyamalan’s ‘The Happening’ is happening in Cambodia.

A day after 136 students collapsed at a Kompong Cham high school while standing at attention as punishment for not showing deference to the national flag, the local police chief offered a unique explanation for the mass fainting – trees.

“According to the hospital’s analysis, the reason why the students fainted is [because of] the huge tree in the school compound and the farmland surrounding the school, which absorbed the oxygen,” said Heng Meng, police chief of Chamkar Leu district, adding that the punishment could not be blamed as one of the teachers “also [had difficulty breathing] and felt dizzy” […]

A doctor from the local hospital, Iv Then,  said that based on his examination, the lack of oxygen was due to an abundance of trees, which trapped the oxygen, adding that the first four or five students fainted because they were standing under the school’s large medicinal oil tree.

So obviously it was the trees. Not the standing in the sun for hours and hours.  No, not that at all.
