NORWALK, CT (WFSB) -

A man was treated for non-life threatening injuries on Thursday after he fell into a trash hopper at the trash transfer station in Norwalk.

Fire officials said the man was emptying trash from his van, at a little before 10 a.m., when he fell 15 feet from the unloading area and into the trash shoot that leads to a dumpster.

When fire crews arrived, transfer station employees had already removed the dumpster so crews could get to the man.

He was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
