Titanic actor Leonardo DiCaprio recently tracked and saved the life of a man, who fell into the water from a cruise. The incident happened while DiCaprio was on a luxury vessel his girlfriend Camila Morrone at St Barts Island.
According to a report in the Sun, the couple’s vessel heard a Mayday alert on December 30, while they were chilling with friends.
The man, who was identified as Victor a crew worker from France, was spotted be one of the members of DiCaprio’s vessel, the report stated.
Soon after the incident took place, the Revenant star decided to conduct a rescue operation. His vessel was the only one to look for the drowning man. After carrying out a search operation for hours, DiCaprio and his crew managed to trace Victor and pulled him out of the water.
"Leonardo saved the life of a man overboard who incredibly had survived by treading water for 11 hours. His boat was the only vessel looking for him. The captain of his ship sent out a panicked emergency message and Leonardo and his team agreed to look for the poor guy," a source told the daily.
The crew members helped Victor with food and clothes before handing him over to the coastguards, the daily stated.
Although Leonardo didn’t bag a Golden Globe award this year, he certainly has a stir of nominations lined-up ahead of him including the Screen Actors Guild, the UK's BAFTAs and the Broadcast Film Critics Association.
