Two of Klum's nannies also got into trouble and had to be helped from the water.

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."
