Milwaukee teen survives being compacted in garbage truck
MILWAUKEE — A Milwaukee teen survived after he was accidentally dumped into the back of a recycling truck and compacted.
Police say the 14-year-old boy ran away from a boot camp-style school for teens Monday and hid among cardboard in a large recycling bin.A Waste Management truck arrived and picked up the bin with its mechanical arms, dumping the contents into its rear compactor.Waste Management spokeswoman Lynn Morgan says the truck continued on its collection route, compacting cardboard several times.The boy was semiconscious when he was finally spotted after the truck dumped its load at a recycling processing center in suburban Germantown. He was taken to Children’s Hospital in nearby Wauwatosa. Police say the boy’s injuries aren’t life-threatening.
Mind you I am in no way making fun of the situation or the kid... but I did have to laugh just a little after reading this! Well its off for me now. I am supposed to be in bed and it is 3am. I have to get up way early (6:30am) and go to an appointment that I just really do not want to go to!!!
