The Titanic star rushed to help Francesco Clark, after he got into difficulty when the crowd surged forward and almost toppled him out of his chair at the singer’s Madison Square Garden show last week.
Clark’s friend, writer Elisa Lipsky-Karasz revealed to America’s New York Post newspaper: “Francesco couldn’t see anything because people were all standing around him. He tried to move to the front, but no one would budge, and nobody cared. Then the security guard come over and was being rude and told him to move.
“At that point, Leo came over and said, ‘Why don’t you come sit with me and I’ll just move over.'” Clark – who was involved in a car accident which left him a quadriplegic, and now runs the Clark’s Botanicals skin-care company – took up the star’s kind offer and moved into the area which was located directly in front of a no-standing zone.
DiCaprio also extended his generous invitation to another wheelchair-bound fan who was struggling to get a good view of the stage.
