Most celebrities want their movies to have a lasting impact, but Dwayne "the Rock" Johnson probably had no idea his film San Andreas would actually save lives. This entertaining action flick also taught a 10-year-old boy about chest compressions, which allowed him to save his 2-year-old brother from drowning.
Johnson posted about the incredible tale on his Instagram on Friday, explaining in a video, "You know, there is a little 10-year-old boy out there and his name is Jacob O'Connor. He's a real-life hero. He couldn't find his little 2-year-old brother, Dylan, so he went out back and found little Dylan laying facedown in their pool. Jacob pulled him out, remained calm, started administering CPR and chest compressions and saved his little brother's life."
I gotta shake the hand of a real life 10yr old hero. Jacob, I'm gonna fly you and your family out to Vancouver so I can meet you. Hopefully, your little 2yr old brother, Dylan is well enough to fly because I wanna meet him too. I'll have some very nice people contact your family in the upcoming days to make the arrangements. Can't wait to meet you big man. And make sure you bring your sweet tooth!
Johnson added, "He learned how to do this by watching this big, brown, bald tattooed guy in his favorite movie, San Andreas. Jacob, I'm so proud of you — so much so, I have got to meet you. I have got to shake the hand of a real-life hero."
Oh, and it gets better, because Johnson — being the amazing man and real-life hero that he is — isn't just letting this story go with an Instagram video. He also invited Jacob, his little brother, Dylan, and their family to join him on the set of his new film, Skyscraper.
This story grabbed my heart. 10yr Jacob O'Connor found his little 2yr old brother, Dylan laying facedown in their pool. He pulled his little brother out and started CPR & chest compressions. He saved little Dylan's life. Jacob said he learned how to do this by watching me in his favorite movie, SAN ANDREAS. I'm so amazed and impressed by this little 10yr old boy's heroic actions and calm instincts in the middle of that kind of emergency distress. I now need to shake young Jacob's hand...
"When you come to my movie sets, it's like Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory, dude, because you can eat all the sweets you want and it's all free," Johnson promised. "I'll see you next week buddy."
And you thought Johnson couldn't get any cooler.
