While vacationing in Oahu, Hawaii, March 31, the German supermodel’s 7-year-old son, Henry, was swept away in a large riptide along with two nannies. Klum, 39, and her bodyguard boyfriend Martin Kirsten sprang to action and saved the trio from drowning.
“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,” the Project Runway host tells Us Weekly in an exclusive statement. “Henry is a strong swimmer and was able to swim back to land. We were able to get everyone out safely.”
