A viral video shows when an upstate Rochester, New York trash truck driver mistakenly rips a bench out of the ground– sending a woman sitting on it flying to the pavement.
The unknown lady was revealed delicately resting on the bench in downtown Rochester, sipping a beverage as she saw the truck’s hydraulic arm come out to grab a nearby garbage can.
In so doing, the claw inadvertently got the edge of the bench’s right arm, yanking it out of the ground as it pulled the can back in– jolting the lady forward.
Her drink was also trashed, spilling as it flew out of her hand as she pulled up just before hitting the truck on the edge of the street.
A witness rapidly signaled the team, with the female stumbling forward again after her very first bid to get to her feet.
The July accident was never reported, nevertheless– and just came to light late last month when someone came forward with the video now. Rochester authorities told the Democrat and Chronicle.
“We’re really trying to reach out and find her, and make sure that she’s all right,” Karen St. Aubin of the city environmental services department told the paper of the mystery benched woman.
“We would love to know who she is and how she is.”
The driver retired quickly after the occurrence, however it was completely unrelated, officials stated. The city law department was examining, St. Aubin told the paper.
