Leonardo DiCaprio Helps Save Man Who Fell Overboard From Cruise Ship
Leonardo DiCaprio, known for his role in Titanic where he played Jack Dawson, who dies of hypothermia once the infamous ship sinks, helped save a Frenchman who had fallen off of a cruise ship in the middle of the ocean. The man tread water for 11 hours he was rescued.
DiCaprio was vacationing in the Caribbean on a luxury vessel with girlfriend Camila Morrone and friends when the captain of the boat received a mayday call that the 24 year old French crewman had fallen off a Club Med yacht near St Martin. The man reportedly fell off the yacht after having too much to drink.
DiCaprio agreed that the group should divert the boat’s original trajectory to help look for the fallen Frenchman. The group searched for hours in rough water until they found the man in the middle of the ocean, pulling him to safety.
DiCaprio attended the 77th Golden Globe awards on Sunday, where he was nominated for his leading role in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. He was also nominated for an Academy Award for five different roles before winning in 2016 for The Reverent. Sony is campaigning for DiCaprio to score another Oscar nomination for Once Upon A Time in Hollywood in the lead actor category, while petitioning for Brad Pitt, who also stars in the film, for the supporting actor so the two won’t have to compete.
