O’Connor saw his brother drowning, took him out the water, then reenacted a scene from ‘The Rock’s’ movie “San Andreas.”


In the film he had to save his daughter and chest compressions on her to save her life.

According to WIIX, ‘The Rock’  flew out Jacob, his mother and the brother he saved for a meet and greet on the set of his new movie “Skyscraper.”


‘The Rock’ shared the entire experience on social media and from the looks of it the O’Connor family had a great time.

Jacob was super nervous and shy the whole time we hung out, so it was fun getting him to laugh and talk. He threw me for an unexpected spin when he showed up on set wearing a shirt that he proudly made with my bull insignia on the front and on the back was the picture of me holding our two puppies, Brutus and Hobbs, after I rescued them from our pool. Seeing that picture on this boy's shirt, got me in the gut. Eventually, we would lose Brutus to heaven, but it wasn't the picture of Brutus that made me tear up, it was the fact that this 10yr old kid, had a heart big enough to put our puppies on his shirt after he saved his little 2yr old brother's life. What a special day. What a special kid. Thanks Jacob for being awesome and for being the kind of person we all aspire to be. ~ DJ
