Woman dies after becoming stuck inside clothing bin, police say

Woman dies after being found unconscious in clothing donation bin

The circumstances that led to her being inside the donation box are unknown at this time.

'She knew everyone here and everyone knew her and she's going to be deeply missed'.

At least seven Canadians have died after getting trapped in bins since 2015, leading some to nickname the boxes "death traps", the Canadian Press reported last week.

"We will continue to work with our bin manufacturer, municipal authorities, design experts and community partners to formalize and promote the adoption of industry-wide safety standards to keep our communities safe", stated the press release.

The box on Dovercourt Road was operated by B'nai Brith Canada, which issued a statement late Tuesday morning saying it runs a donation program that provides "lightly used" clothing to people in need. But they can also trap someone leaning in too far.

Residents living in the area told Canadian TV station CP24that it is not unusual for women from local homeless shelters to attempt to grab things from the charity donation bins. City Manager Lambert Chu said it's only until a safer option can be provided.

She said something must be done about the bins' safety risk.

In addition to developing prototypes in-house, he said the company has teamed up with a professor at the University of British Columbia who has tasked fourth-year engineering students with developing designs for boxes that are both safe and theft-proof. He also said they would have to implement additional safety measures to discourage adults from asking children to squeeze inside the bins instead.

Following the man's death, West Vancouver closed all of its bins. Once a person's motions are detected, he said the system would alert emergency crews.

Taheri said the top design consisted of a cylindrical-shaped bin that would have a rotating top.

The rotating top can only be moved in one direction because it uses a ratchet system so potential thieves would not be able to see earlier donations or the contents inside the bin.

"The fact that there are many types, it makes it challenging", he said.
