Almost a Darwin Award

NZ Herald:

A man who fell asleep in a rubbish skip after “domestic problems” is lucky to be alive after being dumped into a truck that crushes the rubbish.

The South Auckland man was found by the truck driver, who heard him banging for help from inside the compactor only because he had stopped to open a gate at a commercial property in Takinini about 4.20am on Monday.

Industry employees spoken to by the Herald yesterday said it was lucky the man was found because drivers’ routes could involve many stops and they did not always get out of their vehicles before crushing the rubbish.

A rubbish skip seems a very bad place to sleep – for multiple reasons!
