A Los Angeles man decided to donate his body to science this week, and while the thought was admirable, the implementation was regrettable.
A man died Friday after paramedics pulled him out of a donation box in a South Los Angeles neighborhood.
Neighbors said paramedics tried to revive him, but it was too late. A few people believe they have seen the man at the box before, taking clothes and collecting bottles and cans on the street. The donation box is on a residential street, near empty parking lots.
I have no idea why anyone would want to climb into a donation box – except maybe to steal clothing – but getting trapped in a giant steel container… in L.A… in July… is an easy way to recycle yourself.
