Teenager thanks Prince William and the RAF team who rescued her – Hello Magazine

August 30, 2012

According to Hello Magazine:

Teenager Sharon West has expressed her thanks to Prince William who was part of a five-strong RAF crew that saved her in what was described as one of the “fastest and shortest” rescue operations.

[T]he Duke helped to winch Sharon out of the water at Silver Bay in Anglesey, North Wales, whilst her 13-year-old sister Tamara managed to swim safely to shore.

The teenager, who was taken to hospital after the incident, recalled: “I remember saying to the winch men that I thought my life was over. I would like to say a big thank you to all of them.”

Nobility.org Editorial comment: —

Sadly, gratitude is practiced much less than it should be. Even Our Lord Jesus Christ complained of this after curing the 10 lepers and only one, a Samaritan, came back to thank Him: “Were not ten made clean? And where are the nine?” (Luke 17:17). This grateful teen-ager sets a good example fo others. We must always show our gratitude for any benefit, favor, or assistance we receive.
And our thanks too to Prince William and his crew.
