Leo might have saved dozens or hundreds of people in his various pictures; it turns out that he has the same quality while in real-life too. The reel-life protagonist became the savior for a man who was drowning in the Caribbean.
The 45-year-old actor saved a random stranger from drowning in the seas of the Caribbean on December 30. The Titanic actor was on a holiday trip with his friends in St. Barts. A man who was enjoying his time on a Club Med cruise ship fell from the ship to the sea, and the staff from the cruise ship threw a distress signal for help.
DiCaprio, who was enjoying a boat with his friend over the Caribbean, received the distress call, and they decided to go for help. The Revenant’s actor’s boat was only in proximity to the cruise ship. Leo and his friends went to rescue the man, but it wasn’t easy to discover him in the vast ocean.
The man was eventually found and rescued by Leo and his guys’ just an hour before dark. Thankfully, they were able to locate the man, and if they hadn’t found him at that time, the man couldn’t live his rest of the life. The major rainstorm was followed shortly after the dark. The sources, who confirmed the news to USA Today, also reported that the man had been treading on the water for the last 11 hours before his apparent rescue.
Fans are now praising Leo for his absolute gentleman gesture, and they just can’ get over the noble work he pulled out. The Inception actor has been a talk of Twitter after his Once Upon a Time in Hollywood co-star Brad Pitt joked about the famous Titanic scene in which Leo’s character struggles in a raft at the end of the movie.
While receiving his award for best actor in supporting role at this year’s Golden Globe awards, he mentioned how great Leo is before joking about the 1997’s movie scene; he joked that he would’ve have stayed at the raft. He was indicating the moment at the end of the film, in which Leo dies after struggling to hold on a raft, with his co-star– even though there was plenty of room in the raft to hold both lead actors.
