Heidi Klum Rescues Son
Young Henry was swimming with his two nannies on their family trip to the island of Oahu, Hawaii, when the three swimmers unexpectedly got swept away by a large dangerous riptide. Heidi and her bodyguard-boyfriend Martin Kirsten wasted no time and quickly braved the Hawaiian ocean to pull the three swimmers out to safety.
A quote by Heidi from Us Weekly states:
“Of course, as a mother, I was very scared for my child and everyone else in the water, [but] Henry is a strong swimmer and was able to swim back to land. We were able to get everyone out safely.”
The saving grace in this story is the fact that Heidi’s son, Henry, is an avid and strong swimmer. This summer, prepare your children for the beautiful beaches of San Diego with safe swimming education.
San Diego swimming tips
1. Teach your child how to swim. There are many classes available in San Diego such as the YMCA, to help train your child on safe ocean swimming techniques. This is the best way to protect your child from the potential dangers out in the ocean.
2. Train your child to always swim in groups of two or three and to never swim alone. It is smart to have a buddy with you just in case you get into trouble out in the ocean.
2. For children who love the ocean but are not strong swimmers, make sure they stay in water that is thigh high and lower.
3. While out in the water, help your children pick out a permanent landmark to help originate them spatially if they get disoriented in the water. Having a permanent landmark gives your children a destination to swim towards if they happen to get lost.
Train your children to swim and teach them how to be safe in the water.
