He mounted a large air cylinder to the head of his bed and a valve controlled by a computer which he program to wake him up in the morning.

NEED HELP, CALL JESUS 1-800-555-1212

A Mexican showed up with a lawnmower.

Kyra, who had been at Jack's house in Shinwell Crescent, Thornley, followed the route on which he normally takes the dog around nearby Cooper's Court and it was not long before she found him doubled up on a grass verge
Wasting no time, she ran back to his home and got his electric mobility scooter, which does not require a driving licence to use, and drove it that half a mile to where her great-granddad waited. Jack, who had a heart attack in 1999, said: "I am proud of her. I had an angina attack and she said 'give me your keys and I will go and get your buggy'. "I got a pain in the right side of my chest. I could not go any further."Kyra's mom, Karen Allen, 47, of Ellerby Mews, Thornley, said: "I'm proud of her because I dread to think what would have happened to be truthful. "If he had been left he certainly could not have made his way home. He could not get home because of the hills." Jack, who had his spray inhaler with him, managed to drive the scooter home with Kyra, and her step sister Hannah Young, nine, running alongside.
