As soon as he was caught, the man called from the back of the garbage truck. The driver of the truck heard the man calling and the Santa Maria fire department was alerted.

Firefighters made their way to the garbage truck and set up ladders and a rope. Then they lifted the man out of the garbage truck.

The man suffered no injuries when dumped or transported in the garbage truck.
