Try your best not to swoon over Prince Harry's most recent heroic act. 

The 31-year-old royal hunk was one lucky lady's savior when he quickly came to her rescue during the Invictus Games trials on Friday in Bath, England. 

Anna Pollock, a 33-year-old RAF medic, crossed paths with the philanthropist while competing in the trials to earn one of the 100 spots on the UK team and attend the official Paralympic-style competition in Florida. After a spinal bleed resulted in partial paraplegia, she opted to compete in the 200m, 400m and 1500m cycling event aimed at wounded servicemen and women. 

"I wanted a picture and I thought, if I don't do it now I'm never will, so I went to get a picture [with him]," she said to reporters at the event.

While she was able to get her moment with the red-headed hunk, Pollock didn't expect an unlucky sequence of events would turn Henry into her personal rescuer. 

"I was putting my gloves on when the wind took me over," she added. A gust of wind had turned her racing wheelchair on its side and Harry hopped to her aid alongside two additional bystanders. 

No harm, no foul! Pollock stayed smiling as Harry and the mini team returned her to the safety of her wheelchair. It seems the wounded warriors are not the only heroes at this competition. 

The official Invictus games are scheduled to take place from May 8 to May 12 in the United States.
