WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – Wichita fire crews rescued a man who was sleeping in a dumpster and was dumped in a garbage truck Wednesday morning.
It happened around 8 a.m. in the 2500 block of East Pawnee at an apartment complex.
The truck began to compact the trash and that’s when the man suffered injuries to his chest.
A bystander said he heard the man scream and alerted the truck operator who quickly shut off the truck’s compactor.
Fire crews were able to get the man out of a truck using a ladder. He was transported to the hospital with serious but non-life threatening injuries.
