Hillsborough County garbage truck driver Radames Valazquez called 911 early Wednesday morning to report a man and a woman were trapped in the back of his truck.
Valazquez said he was about to compact his truck’s load when he heard the couple shouting for help. “I got two people, I don’t know how they got in the back of the truck, but they stuck in the truck. I almost killed both of them,” he told the 911 dispatcher.
Hillsborough County sheriff’s deputies said they determined Donald Jordan, 37, and Lisa Sirabella, 49, had fallen asleep in a WaWa gas station dumpster after a drunken night at the Seminole Hard Rock Casino.
Jordan, who authorities said appeared highly intoxicated, told deputies he and Sirabella were visiting Tampa from Kissimmee and sought warmth in the dumpster after being left stranded by some friends.
