Australian crushed in rubbish lorry

An Australian man has told how he narrowly escaped being crushed to death inside a rubbish lorry after he fell unconscious following a night out.

CCTV footage shows a group of men tipping Wayne Griffin into a bin which hours later was collected by a compactor in Perth.

Mr Griffin, 40, woke to the roar of the vehicle's crusher and a pressure so strong that it broke his arm and ribs.

He managed to alert the driver by banging on the lorry's side.

Mr Griffin said the driver only heard him because it was raining and he got out to put a lid on one of the dustbins.

2. I'd be laying in hospital
devising ways of killing my friends and dumping the bodies.

Assuming they were his friends, but it wouldn't really matter 'who' did it.
