Model and TV personality Heidi Klum helped save her drowning son, who was swept away by a strong current in Hawaii.
Klum and bodyguard boyfriend Martin Kristen took Klum’s kids; Leni, 8, Henry, 7, Johan, 6, and Lou, 3 to Hawaii, and while on the beach on Easter Day, Henry got swept up by a riptide.
"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," Klum told Us Weekly about the incident. "Henry is a strong swimmer and was able to swim back to land. We were able to get everyone out safely."
