Firefighters work for hours to free man stuck in trash truck

PHILADELPHIA -- Officials said it took firefighters over two hours to free a man who wound up stuck in a trash truck's compactor section. Firefighters used ladders to get into the vehicle so they could remove bags of trash to reach the man. The ordeal happened outside The Kintock Group home, which serves as an interim stop before state and federal prisoners are released. A prisons department spokeswoman said no one was missing from a roll call. The man was taken to a hospital.
