Man sleeping in trash bin nearly crushed

Police in northern Indiana said a man who was apparently sleeping inside a large trash bin narrowly missed being crushed by a garbage truck. Police Lt. Ed Windbigler said an Elkhart Truth newspaper carrier spotted the 42-year-old man on top of the garbage truck about 4 a.m. Thursday and yelling for it to stop. Windbigler said the man fell to the pavement before emergency crews arrived and underwent surgery for injuries that included a possibly lacerated liver and spleen.

Windbigler said the truck’s driver had compacted its load just before dumping the bin holding the man or he likely would have been crushed.
