A 9-year-old boy was seriously injured when his head got caught by the cover of a garbage bin outside a Taunton apartment complex. He was found by his grandmother and he was unconscious at this point.

"As of noontime today, he was in the ICU at Hasbro", Taunton police Lt. Paul D. Roderick said of Hayden Tucker in an email.

Though he suffered critical injuries, he has is expected to recover, said police. "So in essence he was strangling himself".

Roderick said the boy slipped while climbing out of the angled side of the container and did not have the strength to lift the lid nor the height to find solid footing.

WPRI-TV reports that a medical helicopter had been called to the Silver City Galleria to take the child to a hospital. He was playing in the dumpster and had an accident, which is under investigation. The boy's condition was not available. After stepping away from the window, the woman returned and did not see the boy. "I wish it hadn't happened because he's just a little kid and he's a really nice kid", said neighbor Susan Pawowarski.
