Leonardo DiCaprio Rescued a Man From Drowning

“Leonardo played a blinding role in his own real-life Hollywood movie. He saved the life of a man overboard who incredibly had survived by treading water for 11 hours. Leonardo’s boat was the only vessel looking for him.

“The captain put the man’s chances of survival at one in a billion — like winning the lottery twice.”

Leonardo DiCaprio was with his pals when his vessel heard a Mayday call on December 30.

A drunk French crewman, 24, had fallen from a Club Med yacht near St Martin in the Caribbean.

Leo agreed to abandon their private jaunt and embark on a hunt off the island of St Barts.

The severely dehydrated man, known only as Victor, was spotted by Leo’s crew near Saba island.

As the actor looked on, Victor was hauled aboard and sobbed: “I should have died.”

He was given food, drink and clothes before being passed to coastguards.

The source added: “The Club Med cruise worker had fallen overboard after too much alcohol and a long night.

“The captain of his ship sent out a panicked emergency message and Leonardo and his team agreed to look for the poor guy.

“They were the only responders, and his only chance of survival, despite being hours away.

“The ‘man overboard’ was minutes from drowning when he was found.

“He had been treading water and still managed to flail his hands as Leonardo came near.
