Say What?!: Man Survives Ride in Back of Garbage Truck

SACRAMENTO, Calif. – Authorities in California said a man who wound up in the back of a garbage truck survived by building “a coffin around himself” from trash.

Yolo County Sheriff’s Lt. Martin Torres said the man, whose name was not released, was searching through a Sacramento-area garbage bin for his wallet Dec. 13 when the bin was dumped into the garbage truck.

“The man said he was stuck in the truck for about an hour, but estimates show it was more like three or three and a half hours,” Torres told the Woodland Daily Democrat. “The truck made several other pick-ups before arriving at the landfill, where the driver saw the man crawl out of his trash pile.”
