Prince William helped to save a drowning teenager yesterday, proving that there aresuch things as knights in shining armor.

The Duke of Cambridge, a Royal Air Force pilot, answered a distress call with his team after a 13-year-old girl and her 16-year-old sister were caught in a riptide off the coast of Anglesey (where Will and Kate live). The older teenager had swam out to pull her sister out of danger, but she nearly drowned before the duke swooped in with his RAF Sea King helicopter, according to The Telegraph.

It took Prince William and his crew a mere 38 seconds to reach the drowning teenager (Will piloted while his crew pulled the girl out from the water). Master Aircrew Harry Harrison was on the scene with Prince William and gave this description to BBC:
