Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson Meets Boy Who Saved Drowning Little Brother


A few weeks ago,  Jacob O'Connor saved his little brother's life after copying what he learned The Rock do in San Andreas. 
The 10-year-old from Michigan found his two-year-old brother laying face down in a pool at his grandma's house.  Remembering what The Rock did to save his daughter in the movie, Jacob did the same for little brother Dylan.
Jacob pulled Dyan out of the pool and started performing compressions on his chest. Dylan told his grandma what he was doing after performing CPR and she called 911. Jacob did the compressions for about 90 seconds until Jacob's heart started pumping.
It didn't take long for The Rock to catch wind of this story and couldn't wait to meet the real-life hero. Johnson took to Instagram to chronicle his meeting with Jacob.
"Jacob was super nervous and shy the whole time we hung out, so it was fun getting him to laugh and talk. He threw me for an unexpected spin when he showed up on set wearing a shirt that he proudly made with my bull insignia on the front and on the back was the picture of me holding our two puppies, Brutus and Hobbs, after I rescued them from our pool.
Seeing that picture on this boy's shirt, got me in the gut. Eventually, we would lose Brutus to heaven, but it wasn't the picture of Brutus that made me tear up, it was the fact that this 10yr old kid, had a heart big enough to put our puppies on his shirt after he saved his little 2yr old brother's life.
What a special day. What a special kid. Thanks Jacob for being awesome and for being the kind of person we all aspire to be, " posted the Baywatch star on social media.

This story definitely gives me all the feels and is what we need in 2017.
