Dumpster Diver

Woodstock, Calif. (AP) — A man searching in a trash bin in California was scooped up by a garbage truck and taken on a long ride. A local newspaper reported the man survived the ride in the rear of the garbage truck. He was covered in refuse and fecal matter. His name was not released. The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said the man got stuck in the trash truck when it made a pick-up Tuesday. The truck was headed to a landfill. Authorities said the man told police he used lumber in the truck to reach the top of the garbage pile to avoid being compacted. The man was taken to a hospital for complaints of back and neck pain and a hot bath. ___
