SPOKANE (AP) — A couple who were sleeping in a dumpster with their dog were awakened Tuesday morning when they were thrown into the back of a garbage truck in Spokane.
When the driver heard a lot a noise, he pulled over and called for help.
Firefighters arrived and found the man, woman and dog inside the truck. Medics took them to a hospital as a precaution, but they didn’t appear to have any injuries other than bruising.
KREM reports it happened around 7 a.m. near Second Avenue and Sherman.
The couple and dog fell about 5 feet from the dumpster as it was emptied into the garbage truck.
