A 23-year-old Oregon man was sleeping in a dumpster when it was picked up, emptied into a recycling truck, and compacted several times. Miraculously, he survived the incident.
Authorities say Ivan Rosalio Mendez Perez was able to get the attention of the driver by throwing items. He was taken to a local hospital where he was treated for a fractured leg but otherwise in good condition.
