Area Fire Fighter Officials told KWTX that the man survived the incident but could have ended up in a land fill. Its said the man was spotted tumbling out of a dumpster as it was emptied into the transfer station trash pit. First Responders lowered a basket into the pit to help get the man out of there. They say he appeared to be awake. He is said to be around 60 years old.

Had no one seen the man fall into the garbage pit, officials said he could have been put through the trash compactor and sent off to an area landfill. His identity has not yet been released.
