Missouri Woman Saved From Trash Compactor Recalls Classic Scene from Star Wars


Sanitation workers in Springfield were just about to operate the garbage compactor on their trash truck yesterday when they noticed an inebriated woman passed out among the debris in back of the vehicle.

"It looks like she made a really bad decision on where to sleep," Springfield Police spokesman Cpl. Matt Brown told the News-Leader. Authorities weren't sure which Dumpster the woman was lying in before landing in the truck, but note that she could have been killed or injured had the trash collectors turned on the compactor.

All of which reminds me of the following scene from Star Wars as performed by some kids with squirt guns in a weedy lake. Check it out. It's actually produced incredibly well.
