A heartwarming story of togetherness has come from one of absolute tragedy.
The Rock granted a fans wish for a heartfelt message for his mums funeral after she was killed in a horror smash last week when a YouTuber intentionally drive his car into oncoming traffic, killing himself along with the mother and daughter.
Aileen Pizarro, 42, and her daughter Aryana, 12, were killed last week in San Diego when Trevor Heitmann, best known as OG McSkillet, drove his McLaren 650S sports car the wrong way at 100mph.
Aileens heartbroken son Angelo later turned to Dwayne Johnson for comfort, asking the actor to DM him a video message that could be played at her funeral, telling him she had been his biggest fan.
Angelo called on his followers to help get the message shared in the hope that The Rock would see it.
My beautiful mom who passed away loved @TheRock so so SO much. Im trying to get him to do even a video saying her name for the funeral. If you could retweet the crap outta this for him to see it thatd mean the world. Thank you!, he wrote.

He added: Thanks to everyone whos retweeted and liked. My mom and sister both passed away on Thursday in a horrific car crash and even if Mr. Johnson cant be reached the outpouring of love means the world thank you all so much again.
The power of social media is a wonderful thing, and Dwayne Johnson did exactly as he was asked by the grieving man.
In a short clip, he said: Im sending you so much love and light and strength your way, from my family to yours, and I want to say thanks for reaching out.
Angelo updated his fans by telling them: We DID IT OMG OMG OMG.
He then posted a message of thanks to the Hollywood actor, writing: THANK YOU SO MUCH SIR. I hope everyone knows how amazing you are. I cant stop smiling knowing shes smiling so much. Just, thank you. And again thank you to every single person who viewed my post (now over a million).
The Rock then responded yet again telling him it was the least he could do.
Following his success, Angelo then implored singer Alessia Cara to do the same for his little sister, which also worked.
Eight cars were involved as the 18-year-old drove at over 100mph in the wrong direction down I-805 HOV in San Diego, California, at 4.30pm on Thursday, local police have said.
Mrs Pizarro was a marriage and family counsellor and Aryana was due to start seventh grade on Monday, Dominic told the San Diego Union Tribune.
