Heidi Klum - "I did what any mother would do." - Heidi Klum Rescues Son And Nanny During Hawaii Trip

Heidi Klum probably deserves a mom of the year award after pulling her son Henry and one of his nannies out of the ocean and saving them from drowning. The terrifying incident occurred during Klum’s trip to Hawaii with her four kids – Henry, 7, Leni, 8, Johan, 6, and Lou, 3. Henry was apparently caught in a dangerous rip current, along with the nanny and Heidi immediately rushed to the rescue – not only for her son, but for the woman as well.

"Henry swam out of it. I grabbed him at the shore. The nannies were the ones in much deeper trouble," Klum told People magazine after the incident.

One of the most unsettling things for the 39-year-old supermodel was the fact that, instead of rushing to help, a number of bystanders on the beach simply pulled out their cameras and started taking pictures of the incident and of Heidi slipping out of her bikini top during the rescue operation. Of course, this now gives gossip blogs plenty of fodder for the coming days, but Heidi expressed her disappointment in her interview with People.

A trip to the beach is a regular thing for the Klum family.

"The family was surprised that we were being photographed and no one would come help us," she told the mag.

After a safe return home, Klum tried to downplay the incident: "These photos taken recently look much worse that it really was that day," Still, to us it seems like a pretty big deal.
