This is the shocking moment a dustbin lorry toppled over the edge of a garbage pit in China.

Footage shows the vehicle lifting its loader to pour its content onto the pit before it toppled backwards in Maoming City, Guangdong province on May 21.

The driver was injured and trapped inside the truck before rescuers wearing personal protective suits climbed down to help him.

One of the rescuers told local media: ‘The driver had hypoxia due to the toxic air in the 40-metre deep mountain of trash but was fine now. His legs were also fractured and he is recovering at the hospital.’
