Boy killed in horror rubbish truck incident in South Australia

A 13-year-old boy has been killed in a horrific dumpster truck accident in Port Lincoln, South Australia.

Police say three boys, aged 11, 12 and 13, were allegedly asleep in an industrial bin early on Tuesday morning when the bin was being emptied.

Emergency services were called just after 5.20am on Tuesday to the Repco carpark, next to a McDonald’s drive thru, on Liverpool Street.

One boy managed to escape, but the teenager sustained serious injuries and died at the scene.

The third boy was not injured in the accident.

A statement from SA police says the truck driver was not aware the boys were in the bin and is “extremely shaken” by the incident.

All three boys are from the Port Lincoln area.

Safe Work SA have been notified, and police will prepare a report for the coroner.

The Repco car park has been cordoned off as detectives process the scene.
