Comcast Techs Save Woman From Burning Home….Great For Making People Forget About The Fact That They Broadcasted Porn During The Superbowl

It looks like Comcast employees are turning into superheroes lately. After one Comcast tech saved six lives recently, comes this story where a pair of techs from the much maligned company saved an 88 year old woman from a fire:

NewsCenter 5’s Amalia Barreda reported that the Tom Masciulli and Jim MacConnell were working at a home Tuesday on Gardner Road when a man ran up to them and said his house was on fire and his wife was still inside.

“As soon as he said that his wife was in the house, that’s when I couldn’t think anymore and I ran for the house,” MacConnell said.

Fred Smith, the 88-year-old owner of the home, said that his wife, Peggy, 88, was still inside.

“We looked upstairs, and the second floor was just engulfed in smoke. She was at the top of the stairs trying to get down as best she could,” Masciulli said.”When we went upstairs, it was almost a surreal scene. I could see fire behind her, and as I was looking up I could see the billowing black smoke — almost like a movie set,” MacConnell said.”We just went up there, and he grabbed one side, and I grabbed another. We took her out. We brought her down and escorted her all the way down to another house,” Masciulli said.

Very impressive! Comcast needed some great press lately, seeing as they accidentally broadcast porn during the tail end of the SuperBowl on Sunday:

Comcast customers in Tucson, AZ watching the Super Bowl saw more pigskin than they bargained for when 30 seconds of a porno movie cut in to the final minutes of the big game. “I was watching the game with my family, Larry Fitzgerald scores the go ahead TD – then bam, penis,” writes reader David. A Comcastic Fight Club homage, perchance?

Comcast is going to offer $5 to every person who saw this “malfunction.” Great. Good thing that those two techs were around to save lives and deflect attention from this fiasco.
