Homeless man hurt after thrown from dumpster into garbage truck

CHANNELVIEW, Texas - by KHOU 11 News and www.khou.com

 

A homeless man sleeping in a dumpster was nearly killed when the trash was emptied into a compactor in the back of a garbage truck.

It happened outside a business along the East Freeway near Sheldon in Channelview.

The truck's driver called the Channelview Fire Department around 4:59 a.m. Friday.

Firefighters said the driver could hear the man screaming as the trash was being compacted.

"He did sustain some injuries," said Channelview Assistant Fire Chief Charles Villegas. "It may have been due to the compactor, but the driver was alerted in time that he didn't have any severe injuries."

It took firefighters about 25 minutes to free the man. He was then lowered onto a stretcher and taken to the hospital by ambulance.
