    Taken from todays sun....

    A MAN pruning trees with a chainsaw fell from his ladder — and sliced his wife’s head off.

    He was cutting branches in his back garden when he lost his footing. His wife, who was working below, was hit in the neck by the machine’s whirring teeth.

    Police said the woman — in her fifties — was decapitated by the force of the blow.

    Paramedics discovered the scene of horror after racing to the house in Eltham, South East London, on Monday.

    Last night the woman’s husband was in hospital suffering from deep shock.

    A police spokesman said: “It appears the husband slipped and fell.

    “His wife was gardening below him and was hit by the chainsaw and killed instantly. We are treating this as a terrible, tragic accident.”

    A police source added: “It was a horrendous and gory scene.”

    Last night neighbours of the couple spoke of their shock.

    One said: “They were such a lovely couple who were often out in their garden.

    “It is an appalling thing to happen. I just feel so sorry for the husband. There was nothing he could do.”

    Police are not treating the death as suspicious.

    An inquest will be opened within days.

    :S

    Decapitated? The police report says she wasn't decapitated...

    Oh wait, it's the Sun.

    The next time I need to kill someone I'll just make sure there's a stepladder and a hedge nearby. Genius.

    Even mrs.marple couldn't fault it.

    Sorry, but I don't see how a chainsaw could so neatly cut her head off in that situation.

    Unless he gripped the chainsaw at full speed and somehow fell with her neck pinned under the running teeth.

    It would take much longer than the typical split second contact you would expect from him and the chainsaw falling on her.

    A branch half as thick as a human neck takes quite a bit of time ( a few seconds at least) to saw off compared to that split second of contact from a fall.

    I suggest he did her in and used the "I'm a moron who prunes a tree with a chainsaw while my wife is working directly below me" excuse. He'll probably get away with it.

    Should've had a word with Microsoft / Tecmo. They wouldn't allow decapitations in Europe...! :p

    Theres quite a difference between a hard dense wood tree branch, and a squishy flshy neck with some bits of bone in it.

    He didn't decapitate her though - that's just media sensationalism. "She was not decapitated. The woman was killed instantly."

    Perhaps some kind of resolution has been reached in the intervening 13 years?

    @Furtive_Pygmy And why it took over a decade for someone to ask that question.

    If his wife had had a chainsaw too then this never would have happened.

    Mind if I put you on speedial for the next chainsaw massacre? You can go next to my hotline to the internet gun experts and the one to the armchair generals.

    There aren't enough pipes in thread titles. Looks nice and clean. Thread creators, take note.
