The Royal Air Force told the BBC that Capt. Will and his team were engaged in one of its "fastest and shortest" operations, and their rescue chopper arrived in 38 seconds to rescue two girls - 16 and 13.

The girls had been enjoying some body-boarding in Wales, but ended up caught in a strong riptide that dragged the girls out into the sea.

"When I got to her, the elder girl was clearly exhausted and was going under the water for what was the very last time," Winchman, Master Aircrew Harry Harrison told the BBC of the rescue effort.

And it was a good thing that Prince William is such an excellent pilot. According to Master Aircrew Harrison, every second counted.

"This was one rescue where we truly did arrive in the nick of time and managed to save two young lives," he said.
