Dumpster Diving: Dangerous

So this woman is threatening to sue because of injuries incurred while rummaging in a Dumpster for empty cans. Apparently, the Dumpster was emptied into a garbage truck while she was in it.
In her words:
Now, Cobb said, she is angry with the company and will consult an attorney.
"They (Waste Management) tried to get me to sign a waiver to say it was not their fault. I said no way," said Cobb. "I'm going to go talk to my lawyer."
A response from the Waste Management Company:
"Obviously, she should not have been in the Dumpster," said Alfano. "There is a caution sign posted. It says, 'Do not play on, around or occupy this container for any purpose.'"
O'Connor said the incident appears to be Cobb's fault. Alfano said the driver would not be cited because he is not at fault.
"It (the Dumpster) is private property. She was trespassing,"
This better not make it to trial.

When we were getting ready to move one time, and I was looking for boxes, a co-worker suggested I go "dumpster diving" near Little Caesars or Pizza Hut, because they have the best moving boxes and you can wipe/lick the sauce off the boxes.

She clearly has a strong case. The warning said nothing about "rummaging."
