Hero Alert: Leonardo DiCaprio Saves Drowning Man

Most of the movie stars play larger than life characters. Very rarely are they able to live up to their on screen roles. Except Leonardo DiCaprio. It has recently come to light that he has saved a man from drowning while he was on his New Year’s vacation in the Caribbean.

The story is that when he was with his friends at the very tail end of December, he came to know that a person had fallen overboard whilst on a cruise ship in St. Barts. He probably risked his own life to save the man. Leonardo DiCaprio got the distress call and immediately went searching for the man in question with his own boat. Luckily, he found him nearly twenty-six nautical miles (just slightly less than a regular mile) from where he fell. The unidentified man was in the water for eleven hours and was at a risk for drowning. Reports indicate that he was brought on board by Leo and his friends.

Rescuing isn’t the only thing Leo did. He then served up some food and beverages as well for the man. Then the man was taken to the coast guard so that the authorities could tend to him more thoroughly. The man certainly lived and was lucky to be be saved and that too by Leonardo DiCaprio.

Imagine being saved by a famous celebrity and that too by the person who played Jack Dawson in Titanic or the Wolf of Wall Street. But it was really lucky that the man got to live to tell the tale. Leonardo and his team have not given a statement regarding this. But then, Leonardo isn’t the kind of celebrity who will do good deeds and make a huge publicity deal about it.
