Florida Boy Recounts Garbage Truck Horror: ‘I Was Gonna Be A Mashed Potato’!

A Florida boy’s attempt to hide in a trash can almost turned tragic when it was picked up by a garbage truck and nearly sent into the choppers as the blades turned on. 

“I was thinking, ‘This might be the end for me,’” 7-year-old Elias Quezada told WFLA, the NBC station in Tampa. “I almost thought I was gonna be a mashed potato.”

But then a sharp-eyed driver named Waldo Fidele spotted the boy in the truck’s surveillance camera and rushed to turn the choppers off.
