A climber is thanking Britain's Prince William for saving his life.Greg Watkins was climbing the highest peak in Wales when he had what doctors think was a heart attack.

Prince William is a search-and-rescue pilot in the Royal Air Force, and his crew was called to help the man.

"Flight Lieutenant Wales," as the prince is known in the military, piloted the rescue helicopter that brought Watkins back down to safety.

The climber said he didn't realize who the pilot was until another crew member leaned over him at the hospital and whispered "Prince William's just flown you here."
