In July, 10-year-old Jacob O'Connor was sitting on his grandma's couch when he noticed the house's screen doors were open. Jacob recalled how the compressions were done in the film and successfully performed CPR on his younger brother.
Jacob immediately sprang into action, pulling his brother out the pool and starting chest compressions.
Jacob said he went to investigate and found his little brother, Dylan, face down in the water.
But there might be more value to those movies than just the visuals and excitement.
"The first few hours at the hospital were the worst because they weren't sure if he was going to fully recover", says Dylan's mom, Christa.
