Dwayne Johnson stopped his mother Ata from committing suicide when he was 15 years old.
She had gotten into a blazing argument with his father Rocky in Nashville.
He recalled: ”She had a glazed look over her eyes that I had never seen before. She walks right into the middle of I-65, and continues to walk down into oncoming traffic. My heart stopped. I grabbed her and wrestled her over to the side of the road. 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 how in an instant, it can all go away. [It] changed me.”
The semi-retired professional wrestler admitted the incident will plague him for the rest of his life.
He explained on Oprah’s Master class: ”I knew that my parents were going through some really, really tough times in terms of their marriage. I’ll never forget it. It was probably about 1 o’clock in the afternoon. We were at a restaurant, the three of us, and they got into it. They got into a very big fight. Not physical, but just really loud arguing.”
