Can You Hear Me Now?

A Verizon worker had to call for help after being locked in an underground storage vault:

WESTBOROUGH (CBS) Police say the owner of a Westborough storage facility took his anger out on a Verizon worker by locking him up.

Every second counted for Mike Hathaway who was sealed in an underground vault running out of air, and police say it was no accident. The victim was trapped when another man allegedly slammed the door. [...]

Hathaway called 911 from the vault and was eventually freed by a police officer.

Fortunately the signal was strong enough to call for help. No mention of what service the Verizon worker used. That lacking detail could be the obvious or it could be to avoid embarrassment.
