Police were able to rescue the man, who was screaming for help, before he was crushed.

This could be a new trend - we have Florida man, why not Michigan man?

A man fell asleep in a dumpster (yes, we have questions, too) in Kalamazoo on Monday and was dumped into a garbage truck. Luckily, the trash had not been compressed yet when the driver heard the man yelling for help.


Police were called and the man was rescued from inside the garbage truck with a ladder and ropes. He suffered minor injuries and was treated at a local hospital.

It was the very first rescue for the Kalamazoo Tech Rescue Team.
