Movie Scene Saves Drowning Brother

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."

 When Jacob spotted his brother was gone he went to investigate and found he'd managed to unlock two back doors to get into the garden and then walk around the corner to the swimming pool.
After Jacob's life-saving resuscitation Dylan coughed up some water but because he didn't respond fully Jacob ran to tell his grandmother.

She called an ambulance and Dylan was rushed to hospital. In the meantime his mother drove frantically from work to meet them there.

"He was unconscious and on oxygen when I got there," she said, "and was kept in for two days.
"But he's well now and has no neurological damage or any lasting effects."

After all the trauma the mother-of-three can reflect positively on the accident, which happened at the end of last month.
"Thankfully we've been so lucky and it's like it never happened," she said.
