SEATTLE (AP) - A homeless man who had been sleeping in a trash bin was nearly crushed when it was dumped into a garbage truck in Seattle.

The driver heard pounding from his truck about 5:30 a.m. Thursday and stopped compacting.

KIRO reports (https://bit.ly/Zgj54s ) emergency crews were called to the scene, but the man was able to climb out on his own. He was taken to Harborview Medical Center for an evaluation.
