Man crushed by garbage truck

A Romanian man, 36, died on Thursday night after he was crushed under the wheels of a garbage truck in Nicosia.

Police said the incident happened at 8pm in the village of Yeri, in the capital’s outskirts.

The man, who worked as a refuse collector, was standing in the rear of the truck, together with a coworker, 46.

He apparently fell while the vehicle was reversing and was crushed by the rear left wheels.

The man has a wife who also lives in Cyprus.
