Being homeless was tough enough, but a Spokane couple survived after literally being thrown into a garbage truck early this morning.

KREM-TV is reporting that the couple, along with their dog, had been sleeping in a dumpster, but all three were tossed inside a garbage truck when the dumpster was emptied around 7 a.m. in downtown Spokane. The garbage truck driver heard some noise from the back of the truck and noticed some boxes being moved around. That's when he called for help.

The couple was taken to a Spokane hospital, but according to officials, they suffered only minor bruises and no major injuries. The condition of the dog was not immediately known.
