Woman dies after getting trapped inside Toronto clothing donation bin

Woman dies after getting trapped inside Toronto clothing donation bin

Emergency crews were rushed to the scene and found the woman stuck half inside the box upon their arrival.

Last November, a 32-year-old man was discovered dead inside a donation box in Cambridge, Ont., and a man in his 20s died in a similar container in Calgary in July 2017.

Fire services were called to cut the donation box open in order to help rescue the woman, but she was pronounced dead on scene.

First responders performed CPR on the woman but she was pronounced dead at the scene, according to Global News. The latest incident in that province occurred just over a week ago, when a 34-year-old man was discovered in a donation bin in West Vancouver. Police said they believed the woman's death does not appear suspicious and was likely accidental.

In the wake of his death, charities called for the bins to be removed.

There have also been deaths from donation bins in Alberta and Ontario in the last two years.

It's the second death involving a donation bin in the span of a month and at least the eighth such incident since 2015. The hatch that keeps the contents of the bin inside can also trap someone leaning into the mechanism to attempt to remove things from the bin.

"It becomes a human trap".
