Woman dies after becoming trapped in donation bin

A woman has died after falling into a clothing donation bin near Bloor and Dovercourt.

It was around 2 a.m. Tuesday, behind an apartment building, witnesses heard someone yelling for help.

Firefighters cut the metal bin open to get the woman out but she was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police are calling it, "death by misadventure."

It's not the first time something like this has happened.

There was a similar incident late last year in West Vancouver. Donation boxes have since been removed in B.C.
