A 10-year-old boy from Roseville, Michigan, saved his 2-year-old brother from drowning, and the boy says he knew how to save his life – all thanks to Dwyane “The Rock” Johnson.

Jacob O’Connor told said this week that he found his brother Dylan face-down in the pool after wandering outside their grandmother’s home and falling in the water.

He remembered Johnson performing CPR in the 2015 film “San Andreas” and jumped into action to get the toddler out of the pool and do chest compressions ― just like The Rock’s character did in order to save his drowning daughter’s life in the disaster film.

Reports of the incredible rescue in July started circulating on Twitter and soon reached Johnson, who hailed the boy a “real-life hero.”

Dylan spent a day in the hospital and has since made a full recovery, according to several outlets.

In an interview with the Detroit Free Press, the boys’ Mom, Christa O’Connor, said of her 10-year-old son, “He can watch any Rock movie he wants.”

Johnson continued to share stories on Thursday of the heroic event, calling Jacob O’Connor “brave and calm in the face of heightened distress.”
