London, June 14 (ANI): A British woman has expressed her amazement when she came to know that Prince William had helped in rescuing her after she fell of a ledge while climbing Mount Snowdon.
Ruby Lawrence, 21, had been on a sponsored walk to raise 1,000 pounds in memory of her soldier boyfriend, Lance-Corporal Daniel Cooper, 21, who was killed by a roadside bomb in Afghanistan in January.
She was rescued on May 10 during the walk for his regiment, The Rifles, after falling 20ft on to a ledge.
William, 27, who was doing his SAS helicopter training at RAF Valley in Anglesey, north Wales, is said to have helped guide the rescue helicopter in treacherous conditions so medics could airlift her to safety.
"It was a shock to find out he was flying the helicopter and it's a shame I didn't realise it at the time," the Daily Express quoted Lawrence, who is now at home in Hereford nursing a broken leg, as saying.
"I just want to thank the Prince and all of the team involved in my rescue because they did a really good job. If I had been up there on my own, I would have died.
"I was in a lot of pain and I was shaking with shock. It was cold and foggy. The wind-chill factor must have been minus 20," she added.
Lawrence now intends to raise money for the Llanberis Rescue Team once her leg is mended. (ANI)
