On Tuesday, the actor shared photos and a video of himself with 10-year-old Jacob O'Connor, a Michigan boy who rescued his younger brother from drowning using techniques he learned from the Johnson's film, "San Andreas."
Johnson invited Jacob; his mother, Christa O'Connor; and his brother Gavin to visit him on a Vancouver movie set, where he treated them to a table full of chocolate and other sweets.
"It's such an honor meeting this kid," Johnson said in a video he made with Jacob. "I appreciate you, buddy. Thank you. I speak on behalf of the world: We're so proud of you."
Last month ABC affiliate WXYZ in Detroit reported that on July 25, Jacob gave chest compressions to his 2-year-old brother, Dylan, who had fallen into his grandmother's pool. The child told the TV station that he knew what to do after watching Johnson's character in "San Andreas" help a drowning person.
"Can't wait to meet you big man," he said in a video.
