One of the greatest feelings in the world is knowing that you can inspire someone to do the right thing or to be a better person. As a celebrity, this is something that actor and former wrestler, Dwayne Johnson, has the chance to do on a regular basis.
Over the years, his work has inspired and motivated people all over the world, but no one could imagine the effect that his role in the 2015 film, San Andreas, would have on 10-year-old, Jacob O’Connor.
Apparently, Jacob had paid so much attention in the film, that he learned the CPR technique he saw Johnson do – a skill that would eventually come in very handy.
When Jacob noticed his younger brother lying face down in their backyard swimming pool, he immediately jumped into action using the same technique he saw Johnson use in the film.
Thanks to his quick thinking, Jacob’s brother survived the incident and only had to spend one day in the hospital. When Johnson learned of the boy’s bravery, he not only wanted to meet him, but he planned a vacation for the entire O’Connor family.
