A BRITISH backpacker and her Canadian pal died after taking over-the-counter medication when they fell ill in Cambodia, it is reported.
Natalie Jade Seymour, 22 and friend Abbey Gail Amisola, 27, from Canada, were found in a hostel in the city of Kampot.
Natalie's mum Wendy Bowler, 60, told the Mirror that she last spoke to her daughter via Whatsapp, and she had complained of food poisoning.
She said: "My daughter had already told me she wasn't well and said she might go and get something to make her feel better". "The hotel manager was going up and down with drinks and told them they should go to a medical centre", she said. "They made a decision to sleep it off..."
A staff member reportedly found the bodies.
Briton Natalie Seymour loved travelling, her family told newspapers.
"I don't know if they'll want an autopsy to determine cause of death, because nobody knows".

The two women met past year in Bali and became instant friends Seymour's mother, Wendy, told the Mail.
A spokesperson for the Monkey Republic hostel told the Mail: "It seems they were very close friends who were travelling together".
The officer ruled out any suggestion they may have committed suicide together.
