LONDON — Prince William has completed his first mission as a search-and-rescue helicopter co-pilot, plucking a stricken worker from an offshore gas rig.

William's London office said Tuesday that the 28-year-old prince was among the crew of a Royal Air Force Sea King helicopter called to the rig in Morecambe Bay, off the coast of northwestern England, on Saturday.

The crew flew through "squally winds" and mild turbulence to collect the rig worker, who had suffered a suspected heart attack, and transport him to a waiting ambulance.

The royal, known as Flight Lt. Wales in his new job, is second-in-line to the British throne.

He joined the rescue crew at RAF Valley, located in north Wales, last month.
