Jacob O'Connor's story went viral after 7 Action News reported on it earlier this week. O'Connor saved his brother from drowning by performing chest compressions he says he learned by watching The Rock in the movie San Andreas.
In an Instagram post, The Rock said he will be bringing Jacob and his family, including his little brother, to Vancouver and the set of the movie he's filming - Skyscraper.
I gotta shake the hand of a real life 10yr old hero. Jacob, I'm gonna fly you and your family out to Vancouver so I can meet you. Hopefully, your little 2yr old brother, Dylan is well enough to fly because I wanna meet him too. I'll have some very nice people contact your family in the upcoming days to make the arrangements. Can't wait to meet you big man. And make sure you bring your sweet tooth!
Jacob's family recorded the following video of him learning about the invitation.
