Heidi Klum: ‘I Was Very Scared’ As Son & Nannies Were Sucked Out To Sea By Riptide
Heidi Klum is seen at the launch of her new collection ‘Heidi Klum for New Balance’ at Lady Foot Locker in Culver City, Calif., on March 14, 2013
LOS ANGELES, Calif. --
Heidi Klum and her family’s Easter holiday had a brief scare when the waters in Hawaii got a bit treacherous.
The supermodel and “Project Runway” host was enjoying the holiday on the island when son Henry, 7, and two nannies were sucked into a riptide, People reported.
Heidi’s motherly instincts kicked in and she and boyfriend Martin Kristen acted quickly and saved the trio.
“We got pulled into the ocean by a big wave. Of course, as a mother, I was very scared for my child and everyone else in the water,” she told the mag.
Luckily her oldest son was skilled at swimming in the ocean.
“Henry is a strong swimmer and was able to swim back to land. We were able to get everyone out safely,” her statement continued.
On Monday, Heidi and Henry were photographed – on dry land with big smiles – arriving back in Los Angeles from Hawaii.
