(Newser) – Heidi Klum is the latest celebrity-turned-superhero: On vacation in Oahu, her son Henry, 7, was swept away in a riptide; two nannies were also caught up in it. Klum and bodyguard-turned-boyfriend Martin Kirsten jumped in and made sure everyone got to shore, Us reports. "We were able to get everyone out safely," Klum says. Of course, ETOnline's exclusive photos show that Klum was still able to hold onto her probably-expensive sunglasses during the rescue.
