SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. This time, you can actually thank a telemarketer.

An 85-year-old Illinois man fell and spent the night outdoors before help came in the form of a random caller.

Crystal Rozell works for Consumer Direct Marketing in Saratoga Springs, N.Y. When she called the elderly man last Thursday morning, he was cold and desperate outside his rural home. His phone could not make outgoing calls.

Rozell kept the man on the phone until police could be called. The man was taken to the hospital.

Stephenson County Sheriff David Snyders in Illinois had no information about the man's condition, but he wanted to thank Rozell for her help.

A vice president of Consumer Direct Marketing said Rozell usually talks to about 700 to 1,000 people a day. The vice president said, "But she had the compassion to listen, and that is really something."
