Transient dies after getting stuck in clothing donation bin

SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say a 25-year-old transient died after becoming wedged partway inside a clothing donation bin in Southern California.

Police in San Bernardino say Victor Augustine Robles apparently was trying to take clothes out of the large metal bin when he became stuck under the drop-down door.

Robles was declared dead at the scene Tuesday.

The Riverside Press-Enterprise newspaper reported Wednesday that an autopsy is planned.

The position he was stuck in may have resulted in this death.

The official cause of death will be released following the autopsy.
