He fell asleep in a dumpster and woke up in the back of a garbage truck.

Ann Arbor police says a homeless man miraculously escaped serious injury after he was trapped in the truck's compactor.

The man was in a container behind a bar and grill when he was picked up.

Police don't know why he wasn't hurt. Sanitation workers are baffled, too. They say a person could be protected by trash that is hard to compact.

There is a large, dull steel blade that pushes the waste against the wall of the truck to free up space.

Firefighters got on top of the garbage truck and were able to get the man out.
