How do I report downed aerial cable wire?

How on earth am I supposed to report a downed aerial cable wire that (a) has left my home entirely without internet and (b) is lying in the street outside my house?  I have been trying to report the problem for more than an hour and the only option appears to the the Xfinity Assistant bot, which asks me to sign in. Then it thanks me for signing in, and takes me to a different page. Then when I navigate back to the support page, it tells me it can help me better if I sign in.  It's infuriating.  The call-in help line insists that I power cycle my devices (which will not work because the aerial wire has been completely severed) and refuses to connect me to an actual human.  There appears to be no other way to contact comcast/xfinity. 

The wires at my home are on the ground.  I work from home, so this presents an immediate and significant problem.  I need someone to come out and fix it.

@XfinityRoberto​ Can you please clarify what the "peer-to-peer chat" icon looks like?  The only icon I see on this page is the in-app notifications icon.

I have the same problem. I did however keep typing “cable down in street” into the Xfinity assistant and it gave me a prompt to report cable laying across the street. The cable has been laying in the middle of the road since Friday when I got home from work. I have no internet. I’m chatting with the people on this website. It seems to me this should be a priority since it could potentially cause property damage or possibly a wreck.
