It was a busy morning for Britain's Prince William who led a rescue mission Friday to save a teenage girl swept out to sea.

The Duke of Cambridge piloted the rescue helicopter while his colleagues brought the teen girl to safety off the Welsh coast.

The girl was swept away while trying to help her younger sister. A surfer ultimately saved the younger girl. Both were taken to the hospital - and should be fine.

Rescuers say they were very lucky and had just a few scrapes.
