Irish police are trying to track down the family of a homeless man crushed to death after taking shelter in a bin.

Detectives believe the man was unwittingly emptied alive into a waste truck and killed by a compactor during a rubbish collection in Limerick.

Workers at a recycling depot outside the city sifting through waste found his remains and alerted detectives.

Superintendent Frank O'Brien said: "The preliminary findings suggest that he died from crush injuries."

Gardai are working with British police, using fingerprints and dental records, to confirm the man's identity.

It is believed the man, who was in his mid-30s, was originally from the south of England where he has family still living.

certainly yes... at least they should hear him fall! i mean a body falling there is different that the sound of the litter falling!

I feel very little sympathy for this man.

Edit: Before you say "Well what if YOU were the one in the dustbin?", someone slap me HARD if I ever find myself having the urge to climb into one for whatever reason.

you're right, theres no point in jumping to a litter bin... it is better to sleep at the streets... and i'm not being sarcastic!
it seems that some people fall into a stupid despair and can sleep even in a litter bin!

I agree. Totally
Surely he knew the bin would be picked up?

yeah that was what i meant... he sure would be noticed, so the guys who picked the bin didn't even care...
of course he know that he could not jump into a bin, as it would be picked up, but the guys who picked it would notice!
