Woman dies after being found inside Toronto clothing donation bin

A woman found stuck partially inside a clothing donation bin was pronounced dead Tuesday, Toronto Police said.

It's not the first time a person has died after being trapped in a clothing donation box in Canada.

When authorities arrived on scene, they had to cut a part of the metal box to get her out.

The emergency services then made efforts to resuscitate the woman but were unsuccessful and she was pronounced dead at the scene. Police said they believed the woman's death does not appear suspicious and was likely accidental.

A recent death in West Vancouver reportedly prompted charities to pull their donation bins from streets across the city. The latest incident in that province occurred just over a week ago, when a 34-year-old man was discovered in a donation bin in West Vancouver. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Donation boxes have been closed in British Columbia.

A professor at the University of British Columbia has also tasked fourth-year engineering students with redesigning the clothing bins, which some advocates for the homeless describe as "death traps". "[The bins] have inadvertently become death traps".
