WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW/NBC) - A Wichita, Kansas woman narrowly avoided death after becoming trapped inside a garbage truck while dumpster diving Thursday morning.

The woman was searching for metal in a dumpster when the trash truck picked up the dumpster and dumped it into the truck.

The truck driver said he was seconds away from pushing the compactor button when the woman's sister arrived on the scene.

He then realized the woman was in the truck and called 911.
