Prince William Leads Rescue of Two Teenage Girls Swept Out to Sea
12:53 pm, August 17th, 2012
Prince William led the rescue of two teenage girls who had been swept out to sea off the coast of Wales on Thursday.
The Duke of Cambridge’s crew had just returned from another helicopter mission when they received a distress call about two sisters, 16 and 13 years old, who were caught in a rip tide while body boarding near Anglesey.
William’s team arrived on the scene just 38 seconds after getting the call.
The Royal Air Force called the effort one of its “fastest and shortest” operations.
The elder sister was said to have been “exhausted” and in particular danger of drowning, and both girls were transported to a nearby hospital for evaluation.
William was recently made a search and rescue captain in the Royal Air Force, having qualified as a helicopter pilot in 2010.
