Superhero Heidi Klum? The supermodel was reluctant on Wednesday to make a big deal out of her recent exploits in Hawaii, where she helped save her 7-year-old son and two nannies from a ferocious riptide.
"These photos taken recently look much worse than it really was that day," Klum told People. "I did what any mother would do."
The photos, some of which can be seen in the video above, show Klum plunging into the roiling surf, leading her son away from the waves and pulling one of the nannies out of the water.
"Henry swam out of it," the "Project Runway" host told the mag. "I grabbed him at the shore. The nannies were the ones in much deeper trouble."
