Prince William Saves Drowning Girl
If there’s not enough reasons to love Prince William, you’ll be happy to know that the prince recently saved a teen from drowning off the coast of Wales.
The prince who also serves as a Air Force search and rescue pilot responded to a call that was raised when a 16-year-old girl got caught in a rip current. When he was radioed, the prince had just landed his helicopter after conducting search and rescue exercises.
“We never know what we’ll face when we’re called out,” one of the paramedics, Master Aircrew “Harry” Harrison said. “Sometimes it’s just a twisted ankle or a broken bone, but this was one rescue where we truly did arrive in the nick of time and managed to save this young girl’s life.”
In 38 seconds, the crew reached the pair who were bodyboarding, before getting caught in the current. While the girl’s younger friend was rescued by a surfer, the teen was still in the water. Thanks to William and his crew, they were both airlifted to a hospital in Bangor.
Prince William lives with wife Kate in the Welsh Island of Anglesey.
And as one of his fans tweeted, “Prince William rescued a drowning teenager in a helicopter rescue off the coast of Wales. Your move, Ryan Gosling.”
