    A man fell from a loading dock at the Norwalk dump on Thursday morning.

    A man was injured when he fell into a trash chute at the dump in Norwalk just before 10 a.m. on Thursday morning.

    The man was emptying trash from his van and fell 15 feet from the unloading area into the trash chute that leads to a dumpster at the Trash Transfer Station at 61 Crescent Street, according to the fire department.

    Paramedics transported him to Norwalk Hospital and his injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.
