Death crush in bin lorry
A STUDENT found dead at a waste treatment facility is believed to have been CRUSHED to death in the back of a bin lorry.
Tragic Garrett Elsey, 22, from Canada, was scooped up in a communal bin during a lorry collection round in Clifton, Bristol, following a night on the town.
Horrified workers found his body in rubbish dumped on Thursday morning – the day after he arrived in Britain to begin a Masters course at Bristol University
Further tests will be carried out before an official cause of death can be confirmed.
But police yesterday refused to rule out speculation the student was alive when picked up by the bin lorry and died of fatal crush injuries.
