This happened in the wee hours this morning about a 20-minute drive from my place. The Tampa Bay Times reports:
Officials say the man was sleeping in a Dumpster early Wednesday morning when the waste management driver deposited the contents of the Dumpster into the truck.
The driver was making his rounds when he heard the man’s call for help, officials say.
The man was pulled from the truck and taken to St. Joseph’s Hospital in Tampa, where he is in stable condition, Tampa Fire Rescue spokesman Jason Penny said.
