10-year-old Jacob O'Connor rescued his two-year-old brother from drowning by performing the the CPR methods he observed in the movie San Andreas, his favorite film.

Jacob O'Connor of Roseville, Mich. saw his brother Dylan lying face down in their grandmother's pool and pulled him out and gave him chest compressions.

And The Rock has nothing but praise for Jacob.

"The movie just popped up in my head and I started thinking about that scene", Jacob told The Washington Post.

How did Jacob know to pull his brother out and immediately start giving chest compressions?

All in all, life is good for real-life-hero Jacob, and his silver-screen-hero, Dwayne.
