Boy Remembers Scene From Favorite Movie to Save Drowning Brother
Professional actor and wrestler Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson may not have ever given a particularly life-changing performance before – but now, thanks to a 10-year-old boy, one of his performances has become life-saving.
Jacob O’Connor is being credited as a hero after he used a scene from his favorite movie to save his 2-year-old brother Dylan.
Last month, Jacob and his brothers were spending the day at their grandmother’s house. Jacob was about to start watching TV when he noticed that the door was open – and Dylan was gone.
The youngster went outside and saw his brother floating facedown in the backyard pool.
Jacob immediately thought of a scene from the Hollywood action flick San Andreas where the Rock’s character uses chest compressions to save his daughter’s life.
The 10-year-old started mimicking the actor’s motions until Dylan started coughing up water.
Jacob then fetched his grandmother and they rushed Dylan to the hospital. Emergency personnel said that Jacob’s actions almost certainly saved his brother’s life. If he did not intervene as quickly as he did, paramedics may not have been able to help Dylan in time.
