All fun and games until somebody gets dead
Man's life trashed in waste-bin race
By TIM PERONE
Australian man died yesterday after the wheeled-garbage can he was riding in a downhill race crashed into a tree.
The victim, 22, climbed into the trash can with a 19-year-old pal to roll down a slope in New South Wales, authorities said.
But on their way down, they hit a gutter and smacked into a tree. The 22-year-old suffered massive head injuries and died at a hospital.
His friend broke his ribs and suffered other internal injuries.
A third pal escaped injury.
