The Rock praises little hero

Hollywood star Dwayne Johnson, aka The Rock, has dubbed a 10-year-old boy a "real-life hero" after the youngster copied a scene from one of his films and saved his little brother's life.

He got his brother out of the pool and started to do CPR, something he'd learned after watching the film San Andreas starring The Rock.

Last month, Jacob and his brothers were spending the day at their grandmother's house.

According to Jacob, he remembers an important scene from "San Andreas" where Johnson was doing compression to save a life.

On July 25, Jacob O'Connor, a 10-year-old boy from Detroit, was watching television when he realized that his 2-year-old brother, Dylan, had fallen into his grandmother's pool.

I gotta shake the hand of a real life 10yr old hero.

Jacob used that scene as a guide to save Dylan, who'd been face down in the water for nearly a minute after getting through a screen door and falling into the pool.

She called an ambulance and Dylan was rushed to hospital. "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 natural disaster, then there was a tsunami, and the girl was drowning". The boys' mother said, "He can watch any Rock movie he wants" in reference to Jacob's actions.

At first, the family wasn't sure if Dylan was going to make it, but the doctors later came out and said that Jacob's heroic actions did, indeed, save his younger brother's life.

The Rock came to know about the youngster's bravery on Thursday (24 August) and tweeted, "Wow incredible story". Grandma said that Jacob was very calm when telling her what had happened to Dylan.

Vial has since installed double locks on her back doors to prevent a repeat incident. "We're all proud of you!"
