Infant Sally Collins was near the filming location when her mom, Sarah, asked if The Rock would take some time to meet her daughter. At 5 months old, Sally underwent and survived open heart surgery “and has been an inspiring lil’ fighter since that day,” Johnson wrote on Instagram with a photo of Sally, her mom, and sister.
He continued, “Her mama, Sarah here was so grateful we had a chance to meet and got teary eyed when talking about her baby and said something so simple, powerful and true. ‘If Sally can fight thru this, then we can do anything.’ Amen. Yes you can.”

Directed by Seth Gordon, Baywatch sees Johnson plays the role of Mitch Buchannon, a by-the-books lifeguard who teams up with a young hothead (Zac Efron) to save his beach from an oil tychoon. Also while filming in Savannah, Johnson took some time to visit sick kids at the pediatric specialty ward at the Memorial Health hospital.
Johnson wrote at the time on Instagram, “Gotta tell ya little stuff like this will always be the best part of fame.”
