Pint-sized patients got the surprise of a lifetime when larger-than-life professional wrestler turned actor, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson showed up for a surprise visit.
The Baywatch star took a break from filming scenes of the film to visit the Savannah’s Pediatric Specialty Ward and visit the children there.
I surprised the children at Savannah’s Pediatric Specialty Ward aaaaand look at the concentration on lil’ Aiden’s face!👍🏾. We shot #BAYWATCH scenes at Memorial Health Hospital and thought I’d pop up to the ward. Awesome experience and THANK YOU to all the hard working and caring staff who helped make this visit possible. To all the kids I met – you guys keep smiling and staying strong. All the mamas and daddy’s I met, y’all stay strong too. Gotta tell ya little stuff like this will always be the best part of fame. And good Lord I wish I had Aiden’s concentration when I was in my high school math classes. I wouldn’t have failed Algebra twice. 😂👏🏾👍🏾💯
One little guy who left a big impression on Johnson was Aiden, who posed in The Rock’s photo on Instagram to give the star a fist bump.
In his caption, Johnson gives words of encouragement to both the patients and parents:
To all the kids I met – you guys keep smiling and staying strong. All the mamas and daddy’s I met, y’all stay strong too.
