10+ Real-Life Celebrity Heroes

Heidi Klum

The supermodel and her family were enjoying a vacation in paradise when Klum quickly sprang into action Sunday to rescue her oldest son Henry, who got caught up in a dangerous riptide at a beach on the Hawaiian island of Oahu. In a statement to ET Monday, Heidi 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."
