Jack might have let go, but Leonardo DiCaprio didn’t. DiCaprio saved a man who fell overboard earning him hero status in real life.
On Dec. 30, DiCaprio reportedly jumped into action after receiving a distress call for a man who had fallen off a yacht in the Carribean. “Leonardo played a blinding role in his own real-life Hollywood movie,” a source told the British newspaper The Sun. “He saved the life of a man overboard who incredibly had survived by treading water for 11 hours.”
The Once Upon A Time… In Hollywood star had rented a boat while vacationing in St. Barts with his girlfriend Camila Morrone when they found the man. “Leonardo’s boat was the only vessel looking for him,” the source said. “The captain put the man’s chances of survival at one in a billion — like winning the lottery twice.”
DiCaprio reportedly braved rough waters to help the man, who was a Club Med worker who “had too much alcohol,” according to The Sun.
DiCaprio attended the Golden Globes this past weekend without making mention of his heroics.
