Hmm...Maybe Telemarketers Do Have A Purpose

From MediaPost's Real Media Riffs:

Was He Served An Absolut Vodka Ad With That Call? According to Reuters, a hiker stranded in an Andes mountains blizzard escaped death thanks to a timely call from a telemarketer. Leonardo Diaz, on a hike in late May, was stuck above 12,500 feet in the mountains when he tried calling out on his cell phone but found that his pre-paid minutes had run out. Diaz remained in the storm for 24 hours, slowly freezing to death, when his cell phone rang. It was a Bell South telemarketer calling to ask whether Diaz wanted to buy more pre-paid minutes.
