Heidi Klum became a hero this weekend.
The brave mom managed to save her seven-year-old son’s life as he was swallowed up by a tide in the ocean on Sunday.
The family was vacationing on the Hawaiian island of Oahu when the model and her bodyguard boyfriend, Martin Kristen, sprinted to the aid of the young boy and the family nanny who also got swooped up in the ocean.
Heidi released the following statement to RumorFix explaining the horrific event.
“We were pulled into the ocean by a big wave. 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.”
Yikes! We’re glad everyone is safe and sound!
