Aug. 21, 2012, Anlesey, Wales – Prince William has come to the rescue. Again.

Four days after saving a 16-year-old girl from drowning off the
coast of Wales, the prince came to the rescue of an injured Canadian
tourist in North Wales.

Darlene Burton, 58, of Barrie, Ont., was hiking with her husband
along the coast on the island of Anglesey when she fell and broke a
leg on Monday.

Her husband, Lawrence Oakley, says a helicopter was called in to
transfer Burton to a local hospital.

Oakley says a Royal Air Force Sea King helicopter arrived shortly
after and that's when they noticed that Prince William was the
pilot.

Burton was flown to a hospital in Bangor, Wales where she
underwent surgery.

Prince William has been a search and rescue pilot with the
British Royal Air Force since September 2010.
