Prince William was a hero early Sunday morning.
The Duke of Cambridge helped save the lives of two Russian sailors whose cargo ship sank in the Irish Sea — off the coast of North Wales — following a 2 a.m. mayday call.
Prince William, known in the Royal Air Force as Flight Lt. William Wales, co-piloted a helicopter that retrieved two crew members of the ship “Swanland,” which went down after a huge wave snapped its hull.
Prince William brought the two saved men back to his base on the Welsh island of Anglesey. They were then transported to a local hospital.
The coastguard said the body of another seaman had been recovered from the sea, but five others remained missing.
