DARWIN STRIKES AGAIN

From TYPICALLY SPANISH:

A 24 year old Slovakian man has died after getting trapped inside a street container which had been put in place in the Benimaclet area of Valencia to collect clothes for the third world.

Police received a tip-off about the body just before 8am on Wednesday. They think that the man had tried to get inside the container for some reason, but had then been trapped by the complex opening and closing system and was half in and half out of the container when found.

  1. Re Slovakian man. If he was found at 8am, I suppose he had been trying to get into it overnight to sleep to avoid the winter cold, so that’s pretty sad. What’s with the “complex opening and closing system”, though? Meant to deter people from stealing the stuff inside? Or just stupid design?

  2. Susan S – it’s sort of logical, though, that a homeless person is going to try to crawl in at some point or another, isn’t it? … or maybe they didn’t think of that. Oh well, too late now.
