The 45-year-old actor and professional wrestler Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, is a pop culture legend, and people only respect him more and more by the day. Recently, he had the pleasure of meeting Jacob, a ten-year-old boy who saved his brother’s life. ‘The Rock’ was more than touched by this story and decided to meet with him. The story is heart-melting and it also teaches all of us an important lesson.

After finding his 2-year-old brother drowning in the family swimming pool, 10-year-old Jacob saved his life using a technique he learned from one of The Rock’s films. The Rock had actually “taught” him how to perform CPR. The actor flew to Vancouver, to the set of his upcoming film ‘Skyscraper’. Jacob and his family met Johnson on the Vancouver set, and it is all recorded on Instagram.

Johnson shared a video to Instagram on the day of the encounter, September 5.

“He’s such a smart kid,” Johnson said in the clip. “I just want to say so proud of you, such an honor meeting this kid.”

In the post’s caption, he pointed out Jacob’s shirt, which had a photo of Johnson holding his two puppies after saving them from drowning in a pool.

“Ladies and gentlemen, I finally met this real life 10yr old hero, Jacob O’Connor. He rescued his 2yr old brother after finding him face down in their pool. I said, not only do I shake hands, but when I meet heroic kids, I give hugs… now get in here. Despite the fact I looked like 9 ways of hell, battered and bloodied from my scenes, Jacob reluctantly, gave me a hug. A very special day we had on our #Skyscraper set. #JacobOConnor #Hero”

Then, later that day, ‘The Rock’ made an amazing post about Jacob and his family.

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

The Rock even made a post dedicated to Jacob’s mother.

There are real heroes out there, and they are not only adults!
