Arizona woman rescued from garbage truck after falling asleep in trash can

GLOBE, AZ - An Arizona woman is listed in stable condition after authorities say she fell asleep in a trash bin and was loaded into a garbage truck.

Globe police say the 38-year-old woman was found Wednesday after the driver compacted his load eight to 10 times before realizing the woman's plight.

Fire authorities say a bystander heard a voice and saw a head pop out of the truck. That's when the driver immediately shut down the truck and called 911.

Authorities say the woman, identified as Jessica Bunyar, was found in the vehicle's storage compartment.

She was airlifted to Scottsdale Healthcare-Osborn Medical Center.
