Somehow someone got stuck in the back of a trash truck in Denver

Feb 5, 2024, 3:14 PM

I can think of few places that would be worse to get stuck than the back of a trash truck, but then again that is why I don’t go in the back of trash trucks… A guy in the Denver-area didn’t get the memo stay of there, and it didn’t turn out well for him… 

A trash collector, who had just begun his shift at 5 am Friday (Feb 2) in Aurora, Colorado, started hearing odd noises coming from the back of his truck. To his surprise, he found a middle-aged man trapped under piles of garbage, according to Aurora Fire Rescue.

Firefighters were called to rescue the man who was whisked to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Officials have no idea how long the man was trapped inside or how he got in there in the first place.

This guy is reportedly the fourth person to be found in a trash truck this year (not all in Colorado). You’d think people would find a better/less dangerous/less stinky spot to hangout…
