Treecutter Gets Stuck In Tree, Pants Fall Down

Red face, blue undies - man stuck up tree with no pantsFebruary 04, 2009 05:30pm

IT wasn't a typical rescue, but a tree lopper who was plucked from a giant eucalypt with his pants around his ankles certainly appeared grateful to firefighters.

The lopper's safety harness broke, and he ended up perched high up a tree on the Gold Coast 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.
