The Rock Breaks Down Meeting Boy Who Saved His Brother

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson seems to be one of the most awesome humans on the planet.

The WWE fighter-cum-actor got super emotional after meeting the 10-year-old boy who saved his brother’s life by copying CPR he’d seen in one of his films.

When he was told about Jacob O’Connor’s heroic act, he invited the boy and his family on a trip.

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. ~ DJ

You see, because of Jacob, Dan (his younger brother), spent just ONE day in hospital and has since made a complete recovery.

Jacob and his family were flown to Vancouver to meet the actor on the set of his upcoming movie Skyscraper and of course, the Rock documented the whole thing on insta!

TEAR.
