A man in Colorado fell into a trash compactor while trying to retrieve a friend’s phone.
The 22-year-old tried to help his friend after her phone fell into a trash chute at an apartment complex. He fell about 15′ into the compactor after losing his balance.
Even worse…..when he fell in, it activated the compactor.
Emergency services showed up and rescued the guy. He was conscious and screaming in pain.
He ended up being hospitalized with two broken legs, fractures to both sides of his skull, ruptured arteries in his neck, and facial injuries.
