SEATTLE – Emergency crews were called to Capitol Hill early Thursday morning to reports of a person stuck in a dump track.

When a heavy rescue crew arrived at 11th and Pike Street they were able to get the man out of the truck very quickly.

Fire officials said the man was apparently in a dumpster when it had been dumped into the truck.

That man was reportedly ‘alert and oriented’ according to tweets from the Fire Department.

The man was sent to Harborview Medical Center by ambulance.

    Human trash? A good example of how many homeless bums are living on the streets of Seattle. Time to clean-up this city and chase out all the freeloaders and beggars. Too many bums.
