Title: 090909 - Would you believe it?

Dialled 999
On 9/9/9
At 09.09:09
It rang, 9 times
I heard 9 words
Hello, Emergency Services, which service do you require please?
I replied in 9 words
Ambulance please. I think my neighbour's had a stroke.
He's 99.
They arrived, 9 minutes later.
9 minutes after this we reached the hospital.
He arrested. They revived him, 9 times.
He survived.
They found him a bed, on Ward 9.
9 others sharing.
9 hours later, he was sat up, smiling.
”You’re as lucky as a cat with 9 lives”, I said.
”Is that the time?” He replied, “Numb3rs is on at 9!”
