A Tampa man is recovering in the hospital after literally getting trashed earlier this week.
Police say 32-year-old Tristan Godsey was sleeping in a dumpster early Wednesday morning and woke up in the belly of a garbage truck. The driver of the truck was making his routine pickups when he heard a voice calling for help. Police arrived and saw Godsey trapped among the trash in the compactor. He was conscious but injured.
It took emergency workers an hour to free him from the truck. He was then transported to the hospital. His condition is unknown
