Gardener Dies As He's Sucked Into Woodchipper Leaving Behind Pool Of Blood

A gardener was dragged into a woodchipper as the company he worked for was chopping down a tree in a school playground.

According to reports, the man - named as Samuela Cirivakayawa by The Sunday Telegraph - was feeding branches into the machine outside Cromehurst School in Sydney, Australia, as his colleagues left to move a nearby car at around 8.30am.

Mr Cirivakayawa - a Fijian national, according to The Telegraph - and two colleagues had been working on the job at the school for Arbor Tree Group, a tree removal specialist company.

The two co-workers called the emergency services and Australian police cordoned off the area when they arrived on Saturday morning.

They said: "There is no update, police are preparing a report for the Coroner," but confirmed that a 40-year-old man died on Kochia La, Lindfield, outside Cromehurst School on Saturday morning in a workplace incident.

The spokesperson continued: "A crime scene is in place and SafeWork NSW has been notified."
