(11 October 2001, Tennessee) Eight freshman college students were hanging around a vacant library late one night, when they decided it would be a thrill to leap into a small opening they thought was a laundry chute.
Perhaps a few more years of college would have helped them realize that libraries don’t have laundry chutes. It was actually a garbage chute feeding directly into an automatic trash compactor. 19-year-old Wesley “Crusher” was the first to jump. He enjoyed an exhilarating three-story slide before being crushed to death in the rubbish bin below.
