GLOBE, Ariz. -- An Arizona woman is listed in stable condition after authorities said she fell asleep in a trash bin and was loaded into a garbage truck.

KPHO-TV reported that Globe police said the 38-year-old woman was found Wednesday after the driver compacted his load eight to 10 times before realizing the situation.

Fire authorities said a bystander heard a voice and saw a head pop out of the truck. That's when the driver immediately shut down the truck and called 911.

Authorities said the woman, identified as Jessica Bunyar, was found in the vehicle's storage compartment.

She was airlifted to Scottsdale Healthcare-Osborn Medical Center.
