Man found dead in waste truck

The body of a man has been found in a waste truck in Dublin.

Staff at a recycling facility in Ballymount Road, Dublin 24, were unloading the truck when the discovery was made shortly before 9am.

The body of the man, believed to be in his 30s, remains at the scene in the south of the city.

Gardai have launched an investigation and the state pathologist has been notified.

Deputy state pathologist Michael Curtis will examine the body at the scene before it is removed for a full post-mortem examination.

Officers believe the death of the man, who suffered horrific injuries, might have been accidental.

Investigators are probing if he was a h omeless man who was sleeping in an industrial-sized wheelie bin which was emptied into the truck.

A senior source said: "It is looking like a personal tragedy at the moment, but that could change."
