Heidi Klum Rescues Son Henry From Drowning in Hawaii

Heidi Klum AKM-GSI

Heidi Klum's a supermodel, supermom and apparently a superhero, too!

Yes, the multitalented Project Runway host is a bona fide lifesaver! During a recent trip to Hawaii, the 39-year-old blond beauty rescued her and Seal's 7-year-old son, Henry, from a very strong current in the Pacific.

"We were pulled into the ocean by a big wave," Heidi tells E! News in a statement. "Like any mother, I was very scared for my child and everyone else in the water. Thankfully Henry is a strong swimmer and was able to swim back to land and we were able to get everyone out safely."

According to Us Weekly (who was first to report Heidi's heroism), bodyguard boyfriend Martin Kristen also leapt into action when he saw Henry—and two nannies—were in danger. Together, Heidi and Martin were able to save all three from drowning.

Fortunately, following this scare in the sea, Heidi, Martin, Henry and the model's other three children, Leni, Johan, Lou, were able to enjoy the rest of their time in the sun.

Props to Heidi for saving the day!
