NORTH HIGHLANDS (CBS13) – A homeless man has survived being compacted not once, but twice in the back of a garbage truck.
The man was inside of a dumpster located at 3437 Myrtle Avenue in North Highlands at 2:27 p.m. Monday, when a Waste Management truck pulled up, lifted the dumpster and dropped the man and the contents into the compacter, said Sacramento Metro Fire Department representative Scott Cockrum.
After the truck crushed the contents twice, the driver said he heard the man yelling and trying to pull himself out.
The man was pulled from the back of the truck, but was fortunately uninjured.
The man is no stranger to local dumpsters. Businesses in the area have been urged to lock their dumpsters in order to keep the man from getting inside.
