Man Dies After Garbage Bin He Slept In Emptied Into Trash Compactor

by at . Comments

A 41-year-old man died Wednesday of injuries sustained when the garbage bin he slept in was emptied into a trash compactor in Fort Worth, Texas.

Police say the man was seeking shelter from the cold when a garbage truck lifted the bin in which he was sleeping and emptied it into its compactor.


Officer Sharron Neal says workers stopped the contractor when the man began to scream. He was in cardiac arrest when he was removed but revived.

He died later while having surgery at John Peter Smith Hospital.

The Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s Office identified the man as Chad Adams and said that he died of crush injuries to his pelvis during the incident.

The company that owns the trash truck, Progressive Waste Solutions, described the accident as “unfortunate” and says it is investigating the matter.

It's a tragic story, to say the least. If Bob Costas were here right now, he'd tell you that if there were no trash compactors, this man would still be alive.
