Gregery Bulbuc, and aged 31 Romanian, was working in Bermondsey when the chainsaw 'kicks back into his neck' and was left dangling from a tree. Colleagues raced to his aid to bring him down but he was pronounced dead at the scene. The accident happened at 11 am on Wednesday 15th February. Nearby residents called 999. A neighbour said "I thought he had been electrocuted or something, but I thought he was dead. Whilst I was there and waiting for the ambulance, his friends, or whoever he was working with at the time, put a ladder up against the tree. I remember one banging the ladder against the tree. I thought he had been electrocuted or something, but I thought he was dead. It was horrible.”
Ioan Bulbuc, 27, Gregery's brother who is also a tree surgeon, said: "He was the perfect brother. He was a dad, he has one boy who is one-years-old. We lived together in the same house in Beckenham. We are both Romanian and my brother was here from around 2001-2002, a long time. He had been working as a tree surgeon for ten years. He was always so happy. He was so happy to have a little boy. Gregery's birthday was next week, he was such a happy person.
