For most kids, finding a person face down in a pool would be a traumatizing sight. They'd most likely run to seek help from a grown up, who is more equipped to handle the situation. But, ten-year-old Jacob O'Connor isn't like most children.

The young boy from Roseville, Michigan found his 2-year-old brother, Dylan, floating and unconscious in a pool. Instead of calling for help, the brave boy proceeded to help his sibling all on his own.

So how did he do it?

He recalled a scene from his favorite movie, San Andreas, and copied the exact moves Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's character used to save another person. Definitely not the kind of story you hear every day.

"I was scared when I saw Dylan in the pool," Jacob explained to a local news media. "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," he added.

Now, Jacob is being hailed a hero by his family, the media and his favorite actor, The Rock. The actor even tweeted out a sweet message to the brave boy.
