Bin stuck lately?

WHAT was the real story behind the comical scenes in Naracoorte's main street on Wednesday when a man became stuck head-first in a bin?

Emergency services were alerted late morning when a man became stuck head-first in a street bin outside the Target store on Smith St.

With the help of local police, he was able to be freed and turned right way up before the emergency services arrived.

Despite some conjecture that the man was fossicking for cans and bottles in the bin, the Herald was told by a reliable source at the scene that he was in fact attempting to retrieve a phone.
