A couple weeks ago, the Fate Of The Furious star read the story of Jacob O’Connor, a 10-year-old boy who saved his brother’s life using a CPR technique he had learned watching The Rock do it in the movie San Andreas.
Dwayne was so flattered, he not only tweeted high fives to the boy — he invited the whole family to the set of his new movie Skyscraper!
He posted pics of the meeting — which going by The Rock’s shirt happened in between filming some pretty intense action — to his Instagram on Tuesday, writing:
“Ladies and gentlemen, I finally met this real life 10yr old hero, Jacob O’Connor. He rescued his 2yr old brother after finding him facedown in their pool. I said, not only do I shake hands, but when I meet heroic kids, I give hugs.”
Ladies and gentlemen, I finally met this real life 10yr old hero, Jacob O’Connor. He rescued his 2yr old brother after finding him facedown 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 #HeroA post shared by therock (@therock) on Sep 5, 2017 at 6:59am PDT
Big Rock hugs for mama Christa O’Connor. As you can imagine, she’s so proud of her son and even more, so grateful to have her boys. She told me that at first she wondered “Wait, I am just calling Jacob a hero because I’m a proud mom and he’s my son? Then I said, no wait.. he IS a real hero for saving his brother’s life”. Amen. Yup, he sure is. Thank you so much Christa for flying out to Vancouver to allow us to meet you and your boys, Jacob and Gavin. We had a blast and grateful to have you on our set. #OConnorFamily #ProudMamaA post shared by therock (@therock) on Sep 5, 2017 at 7:11am PDT
Surprise! (mama shedding a few happy tears for her boys) I told Jacob and his brother Gavin that when kids visit my movie sets, it’s like Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory because children get to eat all the chocolate and sweets they want and the best part is…IT’S ALL FREE. Well someone has to pay for it, but it ain’t me or the kids lol. Thank you to our entire #Skyscraper crew for all doing their part to make this visit special for this family. #OnSet #RockWonka #OConnorFamily #SugarRush🍫A post shared by therock (@therock) on Sep 5, 2017 at 7:31am PDT
