Feb. 13 (UPI) -- A Texas trash collector was caught on an amused homeowner's security camera doing a backflip on a discarded mattress.

A video posted to a Rowlett community Facebook page shows Demarian Henderson, a collector for FCC Trash and Recycling, loading a waste truck outside the home where the security camera was rolling.


Henderson bounces on a discarded mattress at the side of the road for a few seconds before getting back to work -- and then back to the mattress.

"I dump the can, then I wanted to go back to the mattress because It looked fun! So I got my bounce. Then I hit my backflip!" Henderson told WFAA-TV.

Henderson said locals have started recognizing him from the video.

"A lady came up, she was like 'Are you the one who did the back flip?' I'm like 'Yeah that's me,'" Henderson said. "She's like 'Oh my God!'"
