Worst Game of Hide & Seek Ever: Florida Boy Hiding in Trash Can Gets Dumped.
A 7-year old Florida boy hiding in a trash cheated death thanks to an eagle-eyed garbage truck driver.
Elias Quezada thought he had the perfect hiding spot inside a trash can, but ended up in the back of a bladed garage truck. With the chopper on, the young boy thought he was toast.
“I almost thought I was gonna be a mashed potato.” Quezada said.
Thankfully, the truck driver spotted him on the trucks surveillance camera, and turned the chopper blades off before a disaster struck.
"It was a bad day for me. I was scared." Truck operator Waldo Fidele said.
Fidele immediately called 911 and thankfully the 7-year old was only left with a minor cut.
“In a minute, he went out and the next thing I hear is the sound of the truck and a guy screaming,” Carmen Salazar told WFLA.
Young Elias will be staying away from trash cans for now.
“I don’t like trash cans anymore,” he told WFLA. “Unless it’s like a tiny trash can that’s inside the house, then it might be fine.”
