Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson Saved His Mother's Life When He Was 15

On this week's episode of Oprah's 'Master Class', Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson remembered a personal story which fortunately had a happy ending.

The 43-year-old wrestler and actor recalled a day when he was 15 and his parents "got into a very big fight... just really loud arguing" while out for lunch.

His mother and father got into one car to leave lunch while he followed behind in his car.

"Their car starts swerving and I can clearly see they are arguing," he explained.

They pulled to the side of the road and his mother got out of the car.

"She had a glazed look over her eyes that I had never seen before," he said.

"And she walks right into the middle of I-65 and continues to walk down into incoming traffic. And my heart stopped. Horns were blowing and cars were swerving out of the way."

Johnson raced out of his car and grabbed his mother.

"I don't remember what I said to her, I remember she didn't say a thing. In that moment, one of the greatest lessons I've ever learned was how precious life is and in an instant, it can all go away."

"The irony is my mom has no idea that it even happened," he said. "She does not remember anything, thank God."
