On December 30, DiCaprio was on board a boat that located a Frenchman who had been treading water for 11 hours before he was located, this near the island of St. Barts. The man had fallen off a cruise ship. Apparently the actor immediately agreed to having the vessel he was on diverted in order for the crew to save the man.
