A man reportedly died after a dumpster being lowered from a truck fell on top of the man in the City of Hudson, New York on Monday, Oct. 24.

The unidentified victim, an employee at a disposal company Barbato Disposal of Hillsdale, was lowering a dumpster from a truck when the dumpster fell off and landed on top of him. The Greenport Rescue Squad and Hudson Police Department responded to the 200 block of Long Alley after they received reports that a dumpster had fallen on a man in the area. The officers performed lifesaving measures on the unconscious man, including CPR, but to no avail, Hudson Valley 360 reported.

However, despite the efforts, the man was pronounced dead at the scene by Columbia County Coroner Daniel Herrick.

When the officers talked to the witnesses, they revealed that the dumpster fell on the man when it was being lowered to the ground from a garbage truck, Mid Hudson News reported.

Investigators spent several hours at the scene and the area was closed to the public for several hours.

In a similar but unrelated incident, a Florida man working at a landfill was reportedly crushed to death in a freak accident after the port-a-potty he was using was run over by a bulldozer on Friday, March. 4, as previously reported.

On Friday, March. 4, Aaron Henderson, 40, who was employed by CertiTemp, a company contracted by Polk County to work in sanitation, was reportedly using a portable restroom at the Polk County North Central Landfill when tragedy struck.

Henderson's co-worker, John Johnson, 56, was driving a bulldozer up an embankment with the front blade raised 3 to 4 feet off the ground when it plowed into the port-a-potty the victim was using. Since the blade was raised off the ground, it obstructed the driver's view while he was on the incline.

“The driver negotiated up the embankment toward the staging area, and once on level ground, he began to turn his bulldozer and heard a loud crumble,” the sheriff’s office said.

After hearing the loud noise, Johnson jumped off the bulldozer to check if anyone was inside the portable bathroom and found Henderson unresponsive inside. Henderson was subsequently declared dead at the scene by Emergency Medical Services personnel.
