Supermodel Heidi Klum's 7-year-old son and two nannies reportedly were sucked into a riptide before being helped to safety by Klum and her boyfriend.

The incident happened Sunday while the family was vacationing in Oahu in Hawaii.

Pictures of the incident were posted in ETonline.com, and they show the "Project Runway" host pulling her son, Henry, from the roiling waters. Klum also ended up rescuing two of her nannies who'd gotten into trouble when they went into the water to try and help Henry, according to reports in Us Weekly magazine and People magazine.

Klum's boyfriend and bodyguard, Martin Kirsten, helped get Henry and the nannies to safety.

In a statement to Us weekly, Klum said: "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. Henry is a strong swimmer and was able to swim back to land. We were able to get everyone out safely."
