The Rock Rescues Drowning Puppies, Cements Baywatch Status

Dwayne Johnson, a.k.a. The Rock, was able to get in a little method acting ahead of his performance as a lifeguard in the film version of Baywatch. The action star became a real-life hero after jumping in the pool to save his two puppies.

Johnson shared the scary moment in an Instagram post featuring the two lucky French bulldogs and one very saturated white T-shirt. Also: muscles.


"Hobbs immediately starts doggy-paddling, while Brutus (like a brick) sinks head-first to the bottom of the pool," Johnson wrote. "I take off into a full sprint, fully clothed, dive in the pool, swim to the bottom, rescue my brick — I mean Brutus — and bring him back to the edge of the pool.

"He was a little delirious... took a moment, threw up all the water he swallowed and looked up at me as if to say, 'Thank God you didn't have to give me mouth to mouth!' and then ran off to play with his brother," he added.

Sounds like a close call. Your move, Zac Efron.
