Dwayne Johnson Meets Real-Life 10-Year-Old Hero

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson met a real-life hero, and he’s only 10 years old.

Jacob O’Conner made headlines last month when he saved his two-year-old brother from drowning in a pool, all thanks to the moves he learned from watching Johnson in the movie “San Andreas”.

Johnson shared a photo of him meeting with Jacob from the set of his new movie “Skyscraper”.

The actor also gave Jacob and his older brother Gavin a tour of the set, though they were apparently most excited by the free chocolates and sweets available to the cast and crew.

Plus, the boys’ mother Christa managed to snag a big hug from The Rock himself.

Then this touching video from The Rock…

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
