(Scroll down for video) A night out with friends ended with a man being crushed in a garbage truck.

The incident began when three men were walking on a street when they spotted a garbage truck. One of them, a 25 year old, went onto the back of the garbage truck for fun.

Sadly, he fell inside the truck and was wounded by the compacting mechanism. The drunk man was rushed to a hospital, where he is currently in a coma.

The young men said that they saw the garbage truck parked on the side of the road, when the victim decided to climb onto the back of the truck.

Soon after, the friends noticed that he was not on the truck, and they saw a leg sticking out of the vehicle. They contacted emergency services immediately and the man was hospitalized.

He suffered a crushed skull and his spine was injured.
