IT wasn't a mainstream rescue, but a tree lopper plucked from a giant eucalypt with his pants around his ankles certainly appeared grateful.
The lopper's safety harness broke, and he ended up perched high up a tree holding on for dear life.
His pants fell victim to gravity and while he was holding onto the tree he was unable to hoist them back up.
But the Queensland Fire and Rescue service responded and he climbed down a ladder to safety.
