Black Enterprise Magazine September/October 2018 Issue

A homeless man in Fort Worth, Texas, was seeking a warm place to sleep inside a garbage bin on chilly Wednesday morning when a compactor truck came to pick up the garbage.

The truck began to compact the contents of the bin and the man started to scream, alerting the driver that he was inside.
