A GARDENER was sucked into a woodchipper while chopping down a tree in a school playground – leaving just a pool of blood for his horrified colleagues.
Samuela Cirivakayawa, 40, was feeding branches into the machine outside Sydney’s Cromehurst School on Saturday morning when his pals left to move a nearby car.
When they returned, there was no trace of the 40-year-old – aside from a large pool of blood on the ground.
The trio had been working at the school for Arbor Tree Group.
Aussie cops cordoned off the area after his panicked coworkers called the emergency services.
A New South Wales Police spokesman said: “A 40-year-old man died on Kochia La, Lindfield, outside Cromehurst School on Saturday morning in a workplace incident.
