Leonardo DiCaprio Saves Concert Goers

Leonardo DiCaprio came to the rescue of two wheelchair-bound fans caught in a crowd surge at a Madonna concert in New York City last week.

Quadriplegic Francesco Clark, 28, had a front-row seat at the Madison Square Garden gig, when fans lunging towards the pop superstar nearly knocked him out of his seat.

Clark's friend Elisa Lipsky-Karasz tells PageSix.com, "He 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 came over and was being rude and told him to move. At that point, DiCaprio came over and said, 'Why don't you come sit with me and I'll just move over?'"

Soon afterwards, the Titanic star moved another wheelchair user to a less raucous area next to his seat at the end of the stage's catwalk.
