Boy copied favourite movie scene to save drowning brother

Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson Is Wowed By Boy Who Copied His Skills To Save Toddler's Life

When Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson was informed of Jacob's actions, he prepared a statement on Twitter for him.

Jacob O'Conner, 10, from Roseville, Michigan, was at home when he saw his 2-year-old brother, Dylan, floating face down in the family's pool.

"I pulled him out and started giving him compressions", said Jacob who added that he learned how to give the CPR from watching The Rock in the movie, San Andreas.

"My favourite movie, San Andreas, had compressions (CPR) in the movie and I remembered it from the part in the movie where there was an quake, then there was a tsunami, and the girl was drowning", the young boy said.

She rushed Dylan to the hospital, admitting she was not sure if he was going to recover.

Jacob was sitting on his grandmother Ellen Vial's couch watching TV on July 25 when he realised the back doors were open and his brother nowhere in sight. "I now need to shake young Jacob's hand". "We're all proud of you!"

In a few cases, people may develop more serious symptoms including confusion, tremors, and sudden sensitivity to light. The Kentucky Department of Public Health advises avoiding mosquitos , which are more prevalent between dusk and dawn.

"In most movies, that's what they do". According to mom, Jacob hasn't let all the praise and talk of heroism go to his head.

For half a minute, Jacob said he pushed and pushed until Dylan's "heart started pumping". But somehow, the boy said, Dylan managed to open the sliding door and get in the pool. Hopefully, your little 2yr old brother, Dylan is well enough to fly because I wanna meet him too.

After The Rock got wind of Jacob's heroic efforts, he posted several tweets calling the youngster a "hero".

O'Connor told his grandmother, who called for an ambulance.

On Friday, he posted an Instagram video teasing fans who had waited until 1:15 a.m.to see him, by pretending to drive away and jokingly refusing to sign autographs. The boy was taken to a hospital but was released within a day, WXYZ reported.
