Boy copied favourite movie scene to save drowning brother

Hollywood star Dwayne Johnson, aka The Rock, has dubbed a 10-year-old boy a "real-life hero" after the youngster copied a scene from one of his films and saved his little brother's life.

When Jacob O'Connor found two-year-old Dylan floating face-down in the swimming pool he didn't rush off and find a grown up to help, instead he remembered a move from one of his favourite films, San Andreas.

Jacob, from Roseville, Michigan, managed to pull his brother out of the pool and started giving him chest compressions - just as he'd seen The Rock doing in the film.

Dylan was then rushed to hospital and went on to make a full recovery.

When he heard of Jacob's amazing intervention, Dwayne Johnson tweeted: "Wow amazing story....You're a real life hero. We're all proud of you! DJ".

Jacob's mother Christa O'Connor told the BBC: "I'm at a loss for words. I'm amazed at what Jacob did. I'm so proud of him." She said her son was taking all the praise in his stride and added: "He just thinks it was the natural thing to do.

"Someone asked him if he thought he was a hero and he just said 'I don't know'.

"I'm surprised Jacob remembered what he'd seen in the film but it's one of his favourites and he'd seen it the week before."

The specific scene Jacob was copying was one in San Andreas where Johnson's character tries to save his on screen daughter.

Jacob told local news media: "I was scared when I saw Dylan in the pool."

"My favourite movie, San Andreas, had compressions (CPR) in the movie and I remembered it from the part in the movie where there was an earthquake, then there was a tsunami, and the girl was drowning.

"In most movies, that's what they do. They try to save the person first, and if it's not working, they go get someone."

The boys along with their other brother Gavin, 8, were being looked after by their grandmother while their mother was at work, but Dylan managed to somehow get out unnoticed.- announces bbc.
