Officials say this time of year during colder weather, it's not uncommon for people to climb inside these units, seeking warmer conditions.

 DID HE CLIMB IN OR WAS HE DUMPED IN?

Officials believe the man intentionally climbed inside and was not dumped there from another dumpster.

Fire crews, according to KNDU-NBC-TV, lowered in a ladder to help retrieve the man. He was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment of minor injuries.
