Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson says he's got to meet a real life hero and shake the hand of the 10-year-old metro Detroit boy who saved his brother's life.

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.

Jacob's family recorded the following video of him learning about the invitation.
