Prince William helps rescue boy from quarry in documentary - video

By
Prince William has helped to save an injured boy from a quarry.

The Prince - who works as an aircraft captain in the RAF Search and Rescue Force - and his crew responded to a call at an old slate quarry in Blaenau Ffestiniog, Wales after a local boy fell from a bridge onto some dangerous rocks.

The incident was filmed for a new series of BBC documentary Helicopter Rescue, which follows crews at William's base of RAF Valley on Anglesey and RMB Chivenor in Devon as they respond to casualties.


The programme is the first series to capture the Duke of Cambridge, professionally known as Flt Lt Wales, in his working environment.

Describing his role as captain, Prince William says: "You have to analyse all the information you're given and make the best judgement.

"It's not easy. It makes you feel worried, concerned. You obviously want to make the right call.

"I have a duty of care for the crew and for the casualty in many cases as well, so you do have to think very carefully."

The 30-year-old and his wife Kate Middleton are currently expecting their first child. It was recently reported that he is hoping for a girl while the Duchess would like to have a boy.

Helicopter Rescue airs Monday, April 8 at 8.30pm on BBC One Wales.
