The Klum family vacation almost ended in disaster when Heidi Klum's 7 year old son was hit by a big wave and dragged out to sea.
According to reports, her son, Henry, along with his nanny, and Klum and her boyfriend were all dragged out by the strong wave.
Klum and her bodyguard boyfriend, Martin Kristen, were the strongest swimmers and immediately went to the aid of the young boy and nanny.
The boy and nanny were in big trouble as the riptide along the beach made it difficult to swim back to shore. Klum and her boyfriend ended up dragging them both out of the water.
Klum spoke about the incident to Us Magazine: "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 … Henry is a strong swimmer and was able to swim back to land. We were able to get everyone out safely."
Klum recently divorced her long time husband, Seal, and has since moved on with her new boyfriend. She recently went on holiday to Honolulu with her family which included Leni, 8, Henry, 7, Johan, 6, and Lou, 3. Her boyfriend, Martin Kristen, also joined the family, and was luckily there to help out in the recent incident.
Apart from the emergency rescue that had to be performed by Klum, the family is said to have had a great time on holiday. Klum is also reported to have set up a big Easter egg hunt for her children on the beach.
Klum recently filmed a new commercial for Carl's Jr. and will soon join America's Got Talent, becoming a judge alongside Howie Mandell and Howard Stern.
