Elderly Homeless Man Found Trapped in Dump Truck

A dumpster truck driver was surprised when he stopped the truck at a red light and heard screaming and pounding from within. A passer-by also happened to hear the cries for help and called 911. As it turned out, a homeless man had been sleeping in a dumpster, which was then dumped into the dump truck. The 74 year old sustained serious injuries, including a broken hip and possible shoulder injuries.

The emergency crew that responded had a difficult time extracting him from the dump truck, as he was near the bottom in the front of the truck. They also had to be very careful about the way in which they got him out of the truck so that they didn't injure him more or exacerbate the injuries he already had. He was transported to Baylor Hospital.
