The Rock's San Andreas Helped Michigan Boy Save His Drowning Brother

The Rock's San Andreas Helped Michigan Boy Save His Drowning Brother

"Amazing story. unbelievable boy", Johnson tweeted.

A 10-year-old MI boy saved his younger brother from drowning, saying that he learned the technique from watching pro wrestler/actor Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson in a film.

In late July, Jacob O'Connor noticed something floating in the backyard pool before realising it was his younger brother, who had crept outside through open doors, drowning face down in the unfenced area.

Jacob pulled Dylan from the pool and began administering CPR, which he learned from watching his favourite movie San Andreas, which stars Johnson. He says that he "remembered it from the part in the movie where there was an natural disaster, then there was a tsunami, and the girl was drowning". Vial said Dylan didn't look ok, and he was rushed to the hospital.

I also asked Jacob if he had any advice for any young aspiring heroes. Jacob, I'm so proud of you so much so that I've got to meet you.

Nye was also recognizable as " Bill Nye the Coaster Guy", inside the recently closed Cyberspace Mountain at DisneyQuest. During Bill Nye the Science Guy's initial run from 1994 to 1999, it was nominated for 23 Emmy Awards , winning 19.

But there might be more value to those movies than just the visuals and excitement.

After The Rock got wind of Jacob's heroic efforts, he posted several tweets calling the youngster a "hero". "Hopefully, your little 2yr old brother, Dylan is well enough to fly because I wanna meet him too".

After Jacob's life-saving resuscitation Dylan coughed up some water but because he didn't respond fully Jacob ran to tell his grandmother.

"I'm surprised Jacob remembered what he'd seen in the film, but it's one of his favourites and he'd seen it the week before". The boys' mother was at work. Viau, her mother, called from the ambulance as it sped toward St. John Hospital and Medical Center in Detroit. Grandma said that Jacob was very calm when telling her what had happened to Dylan.

"But he's well now and has no neurological damage or any lasting effects".
