(Newser) – Heidi Klum became the latest star-turned-superhero when she helped to pull her son and his nannies from a riptide. ETOnline rounds up nine more celebs who've saved the day:

  • Harrison Ford is good at finding lost hikers. In 2001, he joined a search party and found a missing Boy Scout; earlier that year, he collected a hiker who couldn't get down a mountain ... in his helicopter.
  • On their way back from a soccer game in Utah, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes saw two accident victims on the side of the road. The celebs called 911 and waited with them until help arrived.

  • Gwyneth Paltrow managed to save someone's life ... by almost running her down. On September 11, 2001, Paltrow almost hit a woman with her SUV in New York. The near-collision led to the woman missing her train, so she was not at her job in the World Trade Center when it fell.
  • Kate Winslet saved Richard Branson's mother when the Virgin mogul's Caribbean mansion caught on fire.
