Each charity donation bin in Vancouver has a list of acceptable donation items written on it.
"People" is not on that list.
Emergency crews spent nearly 30 minutes trying to free a man trapped inside a charity donation bin in Vancouver on Thursday.
Crews had to cut the lock off the charity donation bin to get the man out.
Neighbours first called police at around 2 a.m. on Thursday to report screaming coming from a charity donation bin in front of a daycare.
The man was stuck inside for about three hours, police said. He emerged wearing a shirt and boxer shorts, but no pants.
No arrests were made.
