Man Hurt When Dumpster Emptied Into Garbage Truck

KSAL StaffJuly 5, 2017

Authorities say a man who apparently was sleeping in a dumpster in Wichita was injured when the large metal trash bin was emptied into a garbage truck.

The man was sent to the hospital after the accident shortly before 8 a.m. Wednesday outside an apartment complex.

Television station KSN reported that the truck began to compact the trash and that’s when the man suffered injuries to his chest. The driver of the garbage truck got out to check on something when he heard the victim screaming and discovered he was in the truck.

The man was transported to the hospital. His injuries are considered non-life threatening.

The man’s name was not released.
