A 34-year-old man has been found dead in a clothing donation bin in West Vancouver.

“An off-duty physician walking in the area had found an unresponsive male stuck in the opening of a clothing donation bin,” police said in a statement online.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

His name will not be released. Police say there is no indication of foul play.
