Garbage Truck parking problem in new york citry

New York City firefighters got a multi-ton surprise when called to the scene of this recent accident.

If you look through the windshield, you can just make out the garbage truck driver screaming, "OMG, I'm going to die! I'm going to die!"

He didn't.

The intrepid city crews got him out safely with a ladder, a very long ladder.
