  • Woman dies after getting trapped inside Toronto clothing donation bin

The department received a call around 1:40 a.m. and arrived to find the woman "injured and unconscious", according to a tweet by the Toronto Police Operations Centre. She had become trapped in a charity clothing donation box situated behind a building.

She was without vital signs when firefighters managed to pull her from the bin.

Despite attempts to revive the woman, who was aged in her 30s, she was pronounced dead at the scene.

She said the matter is not considered suspicious and no criminal investigation is underway.

Friends have since identified the woman as 35-year-old Crystal Papineau, according to CTV News. They remember her as a bubbly and friendly face around the neighbourhood. The Vancouver area has seen the majority of incidents, although deaths have occurred in Calgary and Cambridge, Ont. Authorities need to make it easier, not harder, for people to donate to the most vulnerable, she said. "I do think solving homelessness is the solution".

Redesigning the bins is a "tangential" solution at best, she said.

Patricia O'Connell, the executive director of Sistering, said that Papineau was a regular at the shelter for years and that she was compassionate and had a great sense of humour. Instead, they ruled the incident a case of misadventure.

"We obviously believe there's a bigger picture to this than just donation bins.causing death and injury to these unfortunate people, but we've got to step up our stuff over here and make sure everything's safer for everybody".

Four people have died over the past few years in clothing donation bins in the Lower Mainland.

"Someone could have just been trying to get some clothes or even trying to get warm", she said.

In addition to developing prototypes in-house, he said the company has teamed up with a professor at the University of British Columbia who has tasked fourth-year engineering students with developing designs for boxes that are both safe and theft-proof.

There was another clothing bin related fatality on Tuesday in Toronto, a little over a week after a Vancouver man died after getting stuck in a West Vancouver bin. The video will reportedly be sent out to all the charities using the bins as soon as it is complete.
