Heidi Klum's Son and His Nannies Were Almost Swept Away by the Ocean This Easter (UPDATE)

Today in normal stories to which everyone can relate: supermodel Heidi Klum and her bodyguard boyfriend spent Easter Sunday performing an ocean rescue operation after Klum's seven-year-old son Henry and his two nannies were swept from shore in a rip current off the coast of Oahu.

Klum told Us that Henry "is a strong swimmer and was able to get back to land." The nannies he was supposed to be watching eventually made it back to shore as well, which is good because otherwise this incident would have been a lot more scarring.

If you are ever caught in a rip current and neither a supermodel, nor her bodyguard, nor your two nannies are available to save you, remember to swim parallel to the shore until you are out of the current, rather than struggling against it. They're usually no more than 100 feet wide, and once you're out of its pull you can swim back to shore.

Before the near-drowning, Klum tweeted a picture from the beach that proved she is very bad at hiding Easter eggs.

UPDATE: Luckily for us, someone was on the beach snapping pictures instead of helping Heidi Klum save people. Click here for dramatic photos of some VERY surprised looking nannies.
