DiCaprio then allegedly launched a search mission for the missing individual, who has only been identified as Victor.

The actor - who rose to fame with the 1997 Hollywood blockbuster, Titanic - and his friends were the only party who went looking for the man as a storm set in on the 30th December, a source said, according to the publication.
"The Club Med cruise worker had fallen overboard after too much alcohol and a long night," the source told The Sun. "The captain put the man's chances of survival at one in a billion. Like winning the lottery twice.”

DiCaprio, who starred in Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood last year, then finally spotted the man close to the island of Saba.

Victor purportedly cried as he was pulled aboard, saying "I should have died". He was then given food, drink and clothing before being transported to coastguards.

“Leonardo played a blinding role in his own real-life Hollywood movie,” the unidentified source continued to The Sun. "He saved the life of a man overboard who incredibly had survived by treading water for 11 hours."
