A man who fell asleep in a dumpster had a rude awakening in the back of a garbage truck early Thursday morning.

It happened in McKees Rocks, Pennsylvania around 2 a.m., according to WPXI.

After the man was dropped into the back of the truck, he realized his prosthetic leg was missing.

The garbage truck driver eventually heard the man's cries for help and stopped the truck and called 911.

The man spent about 30 minutes searching through the garbage truck for his prosthetic leg before police told him to stop.

"We did not find the led, so they're going to take a look once they get out to the trash dump," McKees Rocks Fire Chief Nick Radoycis told WPXI.
