[India], Aug 26 (ANI): Michigan recently found a hero in a 10-year-old boy after he saved his two-year-old brother from drowning.

Roseville's Jacob O'Connor used CPR methods that he learned while watching Dwayne Johnson's action-flick 'San Andreas.'

The 45-year-old actor took to his Twitter handle and posted a video, writing, "You know there's a little 10-year-old boy out there and his name is Jacob O'Connor. He's a real-life hero."

"He couldn't find his little two-year-old brother Dylan so he went out back and found little Dylan lying face down in their pool. Jacob pulled him out, remained calm and started administering CPR and chest compressions and saved his little brother's life," he added.

Johnson continued, "He learned how to do this by watching this big, brown tattooed guy in his favorite movie 'San Andreas'.

Jacob, I'm so proud of you so much so that I've got to meet you. I've got to shake the hands of a real-life hero."

"When you come to my sets, it's like Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory dude because you can eat all the sweets you want and it's all free," Dwayne teased. "Yes, it's free. I'll see you next week buddy. "

He added, "Hopefully, your little 2yr old brother, Dylan is well enough to fly because I wanna meet him too. I'll have some very nice people contact your family in the upcoming days to make the arrangements."

The video was captioned as, "I gotta shake the hand of a real life 10yr old hero.

Jacob, I'm gonna fly you and your family out to Vancouver so I can meet you. Hopefully, your little 2yr old brother, Dylan is well enough to fly because I wanna meet him too. I'll have some very nice people contact your family in the upcoming days to make the arrangements. Can't wait to meet you big man. And make sure you bring your sweet tooth! ??????"

According to Jacob, he remembered an important scene from 'San Andreas,' wherein Johnson was doing compression to save a life. It later proved to be invaluable.

"There was an earthquake, then it caused a tsunami and then there was a daughter that was drowning and he had to get her out and he did the same thing," the 10-year-old told ABC2 News. (ANI)
