A man who took part in the 'Killer Clown' craze died after being chased into the Jungle in Cambodia. 

While the man's name is - as of the moment - unknown, it's believed he was a 25-year-student at an American university who was visiting relatives in the country. 

The man dressed up as a clown to scare locals in Samraong, who gave chase because they believed he was an 'evil spirit.' They later heard an explosion and realised that he'd stepped on a landmine.

The man couldn't be visually identified because his injuries were too severe. Cambodia has a history of trouble with landmines, with a total roughly 40,000 amputees. 

The 'Killer Clown' trend began in America in August and has since spread across the globe.
